Wetron Transport & Logistics and TransMission Weert once again invest heavily in DAF. Recently they have ordered 17 new trucks of this brand, namely: six DAF LF 260 and eleven DAF XF 480 trucks with Super Space Cab. Last year Wetron also deployed 12 new DAF XF trucks. DAF is popular with this major service provider in transport and logistics. The drivers praise the cab and its fine driving characteristics. Fleet management is charmed by the good service and support from the dealer and by the low fuel consumption. The first six tracks of the new order were recently delivered by Allers Bedrijfswagens B.V. Delivered.
“It’s about replacing older trucks and expanding the fleet,” says Fleet Manager Mike Geurts. This company has been part of the Wetron group since last year. TransMission specializes in the distribution of smaller shipments, for which the LF is ideal for its compact dimensions and maneuverability. The drivers also prefer to drive a DAF. They feel at home and then they know how to get the best return from the truck. We opted for the LF 260 19-ton version, which means the loading floor is level with our docks. This truck also looks slightly more robust than its lighter variants.
Geurts also considers the service and support from the dealer to be decisive for the choice. There is a quick response when something is wrong and the truck is picked up if necessary. The short distance means that little time is wasted and the dealer offers quality. Issues are resolved well and that is really great if you are responsible for a fleet, as in my case. ”
