Waberer orders 1,000 DAF trucks

Waberer orders 1,000 DAF trucks

Waberer International acquires 1,000 new DAF CF and XF trucks to renew its fleet. The order was signed at the IAA exhibition in Hanover by Waberer’s international chairman-CEO György Wáberer and Ron Bonsen, member of the DAF board of management and responsible for marketing and sales.

Delivery of the vehicles will take place this and next year. As a result of the new order, nearly half of Waberer’s fleet of 3,300 units will consist of DAF trucks.

"We have chosen DAF again because of the vehicles’ reliability, high quality and low maintenance cost” – said György Wáberer, right after signing the contract.

He added that with this order the company acquired its 3,000th truck from the Dutch manufacturer. "Other important selection criteria included the size and comfort of the cabs and the availability of important features to further enhance safety. As Europe’s FTL specialist, our company focuses on long distance transport.

"Our truck-trailers transport goods of our customers throughout Europe and beyond. Average distance per trip is some 1,500 kilometres. This is why we are keen to ensure the best working conditions for our drivers. We have ordered all trucks with spacious cabs, equipped with all necessary accessories serving the comfort of the driver, such as an air auxiliary heater.”

"It is a great recognition that one of one of Europe’s leading road transport operators, has chosen DAF again” – commented Mr. Ron Bonsen. "The present agreement will further strengthen the successful and long-term relationship between the two companies. We are proud to be the largest truck supplier for Waberer’s, a company continuously improving its operational efficiency.”
