DAF Trucks won Manufacturer of the Year and the DAF LF series was named Truck of the Year in the United Kingdom for the third year in a row at the 2019 Commercial Fleet Awards, which were held at the National Motorcycle Museum in Birmingham on 8 October. The company has had quite a bit of success in these awards over the past few years with the LF winning Truck of the Year in 2017 and 2018 and another DAF series winning in the Urban Delivery Truck category in 2016. Commercial Fleet readers voted to decide the winners, and DAF believes the LF series ultimately came out on top thanks to its “versatility, reliability, aftersales support, and clear all-round appeal for owners and fleet operators.”
DAF On The Win
“A hat-trick of awards for the LF is hugely gratifying and testament to the longevity of this highly versatile all-rounder,” says Richard Zink, director, marketing and sales and member of the board of management of DAF Trucks. “The fact that this award comes about as a result of feedback from owners and fleet operators is very important. There is nobody better to judge the performance of our products and services than those who depend on them every day. Those same operators demand high levels of productivity, ultra-reliability and maximum uptime, and, of course, our fantastic DAF Dealer network must take credit for delivering unrivalled levels of aftersales support.”
