Discover the DAF solutions for tanker transport


Long distance transport

Tanker transport

Weight – that’s what it’s all about in the tank transport sector. The lighter the truck, the more kilos or litres can be transported within the legal limits, an aspect for which DAF has its own specific solutions.

DAF trucks are known for their favourable vehicle weights and generous loading capacity. And when every single kilo or litre counts, there is always the option of choosing aluminium rims, aluminium air receivers, various kinds of fuel tanks or an extra-light fifth-wheel coupling.

Special software in the TraXon automatic transmission deals superbly with load reversals caused in tank combinations by shifting loads when accelerating and braking. It is also useful to know that many of the latest comfort and safety technologies are now standard features in a DAF, including Vehicle Stability Control, Lane Departure Warning and Advanced Emergency Braking. And DAF is the only brand that offers Adaptive Cruise Control as standard.
