DAF Trucks gears up for largest ever presence at CV Show
DAF Trucks heads to the CV Show in April with its largest ever vehicle display at the NEC covering its full range of new LF, CF and XF chassis across two exhibition areas. Exciting aftersales initiatives will also form a significant part of DAF Trucks’ presence at the Show.
The market leader’s main stand in Hall 5 will showcase models from across the range with LF and CF & XF variants on display, while an adjacent outside stand will provide visitors with a wide selection of vocational vehicles including multi-axle tractors and rigids, and a variety of DAF First Choice quality-approved used trucks.
Show vehicles include a new CF 8x4 tipper offering 250kg more payload over its predecessor model; a lightweight CF 450 FTP 6x2 tractor for the petro-chemical market complete with Safe Loading Pass and ADR compliance; a compact LF City 7.5-tonner equipped with a PACCAR boxvan body and a CF 370 FAN 6x2 rigid featuring the lastest electro-hydraulic rear-steer technology. DAF Truck’s Showtrekker low-deck tractor and trailer combination will also be on display decked in striking air-brushed livery to celebrate the company’s history.
DAF Trucks’ main stand will also focus on the company’s extensive customer support portfolio, including DAF Connect, an online Fleet Management system, and DAF Fleet Services, DAF Trucks’ comprehensive maintenance support package to support major fleets operating across multiple locations to ensure whole-fleet compliance and to maximise vehicle uptime.
The CV Show will also see DAF Trucks promote its new driver training voucher scheme. Upon acquiring their new CF and XF vehicles, all retail customers’ drivers will be entitled to professional driver training courtesy of 25 dedicated DAF Dealer Driver Trainers located throughout the DAF Dealer network. Approximately 2.5 hours in total, training includes in-cab and vehicle walk-round familiarisation followed by on-road coaching.
“We’re delighted to be exhibiting at the CV Show again this year in line with our intention to attend the show on a two-yearly cycle,” said DAF Trucks’ Managing Director, Robin Easton, “The CV Show always provides us with a great opportunity to network with customers, both exisiting and new, plus a chance to exhibit our new LF, CF and XF product range – which, of course, we unveiled at the NEC in 2017.”
