OnPoint Logistics points to new marque with DAF

Birmingham-based haulage and distribution specialist, OnPoint Logistics, has taken delivery of two top-of-the-range DAF XF530 FTG three-axle tractors – the first ever DAF products in the company’s fleet. The introduction of the new XFs signals OnPoint’s intention to benchmark DAF Trucks’ premium-duty model against its existing marques.

Equipped with Super Space Cabs, the new DAFs coincide with OnPoint’s recent partnership with Palletforce with the company embarking on operations throughout the UK and overseas. The deliveries signal further growth of the OnPoint fleet with its truck fleet now topping 95 units. The new XFs were supplied by DAF Dealer Imperial Commercials in Halesowen.

OnPoint is also receiving deliveries of seven new tri-axle trailers from Winsford-based Tiger Trailers. The new curtainsided trailer fleet comprises straight-frame and new double-deck ‘tall-boy’ trailers.

The introduction of the DAF XF product sees OnPoint continue its policy of operating premium specification trucks. Operations Director, Anthony Delaney, explains, “We have seen DAF’s six-wheel Super Space Cab in a number of high-profile fleets, so we felt it time to benchmark the truck against our other premium duty fleet models.”

Specialising in telecoms and IT relocation, OnPoint cites BT, Virgin Media and Fujitsu among its client portfolio.

“We’re increasingly working with Blue Chip companies in the automotive and retail sectors,” he says, “and our on-road presence must underscore and reflect these business relationships. Initial feedback from our drivers is very favourable indeed; early signs of excellent fuel economy are also evident and I’m looking forward to seeing how the DAF XF acquits itself long-term against our more established models.

OnPoint offers a range of distribution services including contract haulage, time-critical, secure storage, IT specialisation and abnormal loads. Operations extend throughout the UK and onto the European mainland.
