Newport-based Freight Movement has taken delivery of two DAF XF 480 FTG 6x2 tractor units from Watts Truck and Van.

The new generation XFs feature Super Space Cabs, 480hp MX-13 engines and 12-speed Traxon automated gearboxes.

They are on two-year DAF MultiSupport R&M packages, with the option to extend.

Freight Movement, which runs a mixed fleet, services its trailer fleet as well as some of its smaller rigids in its own four-bay workshop.

Co-owner Paul Hurley said: “We wanted a couple of new fleet-leader units to enhance the image of the business.

"The local sales guy listened to what we thought we wanted, offered some specific DAF-related input and then got the deal with the really excellent service back-up he could offer.

“We are growing steadily and need the fleet maintained at times when it suits our business, so evening and weekend maintenance and inspections really ticked a box for us.”
