Dantra expands its fleet with 11 new DAF trucks

DAF has just delivered five more XF Euro 6 trucks to Dantra – the first in a series of 11, two of which will replace existing vehicles, while the remaining nine will go towards a net expansion of the group’s vehicle fleet at home and abroad.

DAF expects the driveline, axles and engine of the vehicles to cover 1.6 million km, which covers our needs.

- Kenneth Jensen, President and CEO Dantra A/S.

This is the 460 hp XF Euro 6 Space Cab model, which, as well as being environmentally friendly, offers a number of ground-breaking new features. The cars come in Dantra's instantly recognizable red color and with a long list of optional extras that particularly contribute to increased safety - including red seat belts, airbags, hands-free phone installations, alcohol locks, front cameras, full ADR, DAF Night Lock, 12-speed automatic transmissions and a speed limit of 85 km/h.

Since 1971, Dantra has been using DAF, which has long been the main vehicle brand in the fleet. The group was also the first in Scandinavia to register a DAF XF Euro 6, and now the first order is being followed up with a new and larger one.

After test-driving the XF Euro 6 for a year, we decided to expand the fleet as we needed more cars. The choice fell on several DAF XFs because the model scores highly on price, economy and quality.

The vehicles are designed for tanker transport and are built at Truckcenter A/S in Hjøllund. They will be maintained through service contracts by Truckcenter's branches in Hjøllund, Padborg and Malmö. The tires are supplied by Michelin.
