Transport company orders fleet of 1,300 Daf trucks

Spanish transport company Primafrio Group has placed a major order with Daf for 1,300 XF 480 Super Space Cab trucks.

The fleet order will be handed over according to a delivery schedule that will run to the end of 2023. The first batch of 400 trucks has just been put into operation on Primafrio’s routes throughout Europe.

José Esteban Conesa, CEO of Primafrio, said: “In 2016 the first agreement was made for delivery of 1,000 Daf trucks to Primafrio Group, of which the first 300 vehicles were taken into operation the year after.

“Daily practice has shown that these vehicles set the benchmark in reliability, fuel efficiency and driver comfort. This new order is part of our fleet renewal plan which will allow us to have vehicles featuring the latest available advanced technologies.”

He added: “Through the 1,300 Daf’s XF 480 Super Space Cab trucks we can further improve the profitability and efficiency on our routes.

“In addition, the CO2 footprint of the Primafrio Group fleet will be reduced with the highly efficient XF tractors.”

Richard Zink, director marketing and sales and member of the board of management at Daf Trucks, said the order was a “huge recognition” of the trucks’ reliability, efficiency and driver comfort.

“In addition, this order underlines the positive sentiment of the market - the demand for transport is on its way back,” he said.

“We are very happy that we can support the transport industry with high quality trucks.”
