The newest vehicle to join the Stressline fleet is a DAF CF Euro 6. The brand new truck joined Stressline this month and hit the road this very morning with its first load.
This new vehicle has been acquired to help manage the increasing demands of the transport department with our growing product range, and growing customer base.
With a payload of 20 tonnes, which is an improvement of 4.5 tonnes on its predecessor, and a 3m longer bed, the new 8-wheeler rigid is designed to carry more stock for further and improve our overall transport efficiency. Like our other vehicles, it will cover over 60,000 miles every year delivering to sites as far north as Glasgow, and as far south as Cornwall.
The DAF truck also has rear steer which helps the driver negotiate tight spaces and deliver to more sites and merchant yards.
The new DAF vehicle has been chosen by Stressline in no small part because of its luxury cab it offers to drivers. The beautiful and ultra-comfortable interior allows the drivers, who can spend up to 10 hours a day driving in the cab, to feel as comfortable as possible. The DAF website reports that the cab has been ‘completely designed around the driver, with all controls perfectly within reach.’
The new DAF TruckPhone also ensures that drivers can use the hands-free phone system as efficiently and safely as possible. In addition to this feature, every new vehicle will be equipped with TOMTOM tracking from 1st July, making communication with the driver clearer and safer.
