Large DAF fleet renewal for Maritime Transport

  • 120 Euro-6 DAF XF 460 FTG Super Space Cabs on programmed delivery
  • Euro-6 fuel economy sees improvement over Euro-5
  • 70 units include new Predictive Cruise Control

Market-leading container operator, Maritime Transport, has commenced deliveries of a 120 tractor unit order for Euro-6 DAF XF 460 FTG Super Space Cabs. With 70 already delivered, the balance will be in service with the Felixstowe-headquartered operator by the end of September.

These latest DAF XFs, comprising additions and replacements, take DAF’s presence in the Maritime fleet to around 20% in a fleet totalling over 1,000 trucks, underling its ‘core brand’ position with Maritime.

Already, the initial batch of Euro-6 XFs are returning improved fuel figures over their Euro-5 counterparts and, with DAF’s new Predictive Cruise Control specified on 70 units, Maritime is hoping for even greater returns.

“DAF is forecasting even better fuel economy from its predictive Cruise Control, and we’re looking forward to seeing that translate into real-time operations,” said Fleet Engineer, Stuart Wardlaw, “encouragingly the latest XFs are outperforming their Euro-5 stablemates at the fuel pumps.”

“Selecting the right vehicle and specification plays an important part of the driver experience at Maritime,” continued Wardlaw, “The new DAF is an exceptionally good design and the Super Space Cab provides excellent comfort – and our drivers simply love them,” he said.
