Based on outstanding in-service experience, leading European transport company Girteka Logistics has ordered a further 1,500 DAF XF trucks. Earlier this year, Girteka Logistics has taken delivery of an initial 500 DAF XF tractors.
DAF XF – surpassing expectations
“Our decision to opt for the first batch of 500 DAF XF trucks followed comprehensive market research”, added Edvardas Liachovičius. “In daily practice, the vehicles even surpass our high expectations in every aspect. Not only from a business point of view, but also from the perspective of the drivers who love the highly comfortable cab and the great driving characteristics. In addition, the DAF trucks support our efforts to reduce our CO2 footprint. The new XF sets a new standard in fuel efficiency, which is directly related to lowest CO2 emissions.”
Highest fuel efficiency
The 1,500 DAF XF Girteka Logistics trucks will be equipped with the 12.9 litre PACCAR MX-13 engine (355 kW/480 hp) in combination with the new TraXon automated gearbox. The trucks have the latest technologies on board, including Predictive Cruise Control, Predictive Shifting, Lane Departure Warning, AEBS and Forward Collision Warning. For maximum uptime, Girteka Logistics has opted for service intervals of up to no less than 200,000 kilometres.
Strong recognition of DAF’s trucks
“We are delighted that leading transport operator Girteka Logistics has again opted for the new DAF XF – International Truck of the Year 2018 – to further expand its impressive fleet”, said Richard Zink, member of the Board of Management and director Marketing and Sales. “The fact that the decision is driven by the excellent experiences of Girteka with the DAF XF, illustrates the truck’s outstanding quality, reliability, efficiency and driver comfort. In addition, the new order is a great recognition of our professional dealer network throughout Europe.”
