DAF Trucks is offering a free hot drink for truck drivers at a number of independent truck stops. From Thursday (9 April), drivers of trucks, regardless of make, can claim their cuppa from the following locations.

·         New Hollies (Cannock and Holyhead)

·         Chippenham Pitstop

·         Route 74 Truckstop (Lesmahagow)

·         Ashford Truckstop

“Sure, a free cup of coffee is a small thank-you for a massive effort from drivers,” said DAF Trucks marketing manager, Phil Moon, “But, sometimes, it’s the little gestures that can mean a great deal to an individual; even simply putting the kettle on. DAF Trucks is enormously grateful to the truck driving community for its contribution – we always have been – but, in the face of the incredible challenge that presents itself today, their work is brought into even sharper focus and is absolutely fundamental to the national effort to stem, and beat, the coronavirus outbreak.”
