Italian component manufacturer Bifrangi UK has ordered a new generation Daf XF 480 from Ford and Slater with full routine servicing and maintenance.

The truck, with Super Space Cab and hydraulic tipping equipment, replaces an older vehicle being used to transport parts in the UK and abroad. The latest CF and XF models have new drivelines and engine specifications, with aerodynamic improvements resulting in up to 7% lower fuel consumption.

Bifrangi UK administration manager Andrew Webster said that with long distance deliveries part of its everyday business, the company wanted a truck that could provide substantial fuel and efficiency savings. “We needed to ensure that when our drivers are delivering parts across Europe, the fuel costs do not exceed our profits,” he said.

“Daf is known worldwide for its efficiency and a promise of up to 7% less fuel consumption for the new trucks is ideal for our business, and an important reason for our decision. We are delighted with the service received from Ford and Slater. We look forward to the arrival of our new truck and can’t wait to see it in action.”
