DAF New XFs for Primafrio
Leading Spanish transport company, Primafrio, has taken delivery of 280 DAF New XF trucks into its Murcia-based chilled, frozen and high-value goods operation.
“Based on the excellent reliability and fuel efficiency of the first 30 New XF trucks added to our fleet,” said Juan Conesa, Managing Director of Primafrio, “we have taken delivery of another 250 units. These great new trucks are part of our plan to further expand our business throughout Europe.”
He added, “Our decision to opt for the top-of-the-range DAF XF truck follows comprehensive market research. To support our position as a premium transport operator we required a premium product, offering lowest operating cost, among other things, through lowest fuel consumption. In addition,” he said, “Primafrio is committed to the environment. DAF surpassed our expectations because it offers low CO2 emissions, also thanks to the introduction of the New XF of which fuel efficiency has increased by at least 7%, setting a new standard in the industry. In the same way, in the constant search for maximum well-being of our employees, and in order to have the best possible truck in the market for our drivers, we have chosen the most comfortable and spacious Super Space Cab versions.”
The 250 DAF New XF Primafrio trucks are equipped with a 12.9 litre PACCAR MX-13 engine (365 kW/480 hp).
“The fact that leading transport operators like Primafrio are opting for our New XF – International Truck of the Year 2018 – is a huge recognition of the trucks’ quality, reliability, efficiency and driver comfort,” added DAF Trucks President Preston Feight.
