Oct 16, 2019

For the third successive year, the DAF LF series has been crowned Truck of the Year at the annual Commercial Fleet Awards in the United Kingdom. In addition, the Manufacturer of the Year award also went to DAF Trucks. DAF thereby seized the two most important truck related awards of this 2019 award ceremony. The awards were presented as a result of the voting by Commercial Fleet readers who include professionals from across the UK transport sector.

Previous Truck of the Year Awards wins for the DAF LF came in 2018 and 2017. In 2016, DAF’s lightweight rigid range also scored a victory in the Urban Delivery Truck category. With tough competition ever-present in the UK fleet sector, the DAF LF is highly respected for its versatility, reliability, aftersales support and clear all-round appeal for owners and fleet operators.

“A hat-trick of awards for the LF is hugely gratifying,” stated Richard Zink, Director Marketing & Sales and Member of the Board of Management of DAF Trucks, “and testament to the longevity of this highly versatile all-rounder. 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.”
