JJX Logistics are delighted to have received the latest addition of new generation efficiency maximising class-leading trucks from Dutch manufacturers DAF.
“I know just how important it is for everyone in the logistics industry to play their part in reducing our environmental impact and the arrival of these new top of the line vehicles helps continue the effort in reducing our carbon emissions.” describes John Donovan, Managing Director of JJX Logistics.
What’s the Big Deal?
The European Commission has introduced new masses and dimensions regulations with the objective to push the boundaries in terms of both emissions (CO2), traffic safety and driver comfort. DAF is the first of all European truck manufacturers to introduce a full new generation of trucks featuring a highly attractive and very aerodynamic design, using the additional freedom offered by the new legislation.
Class-leading efficiency, safety and driver comfort come together in the game-changing New Generation DAF trucks. That is why they have been awarded ‘International Truck of the Year 2022’, the most prestigious recognition in the truck industry.
With the New Generation XF, XG and XG+, DAF is introducing a new benchmark in transport efficiency. The sophisticated long haul vehicles feature an aerodynamic design which is leading the way in the industry.
Also significant innovations to the PACCAR MX-engines, TraXon automated transmission and DAF rear axles contribute to a fuel efficiency gain of up to no less than 10%. Low vehicle weight and excellent serviceability contribute to class-leading payload and uptime.
When it comes to safety, DAF’s philosophy has always been ‘Hands on the Wheel, Eyes on the Road.’ Therefore, the New Generation DAF offers class-leading ergonomics.
All driving related functions are operated from the steering wheel and the steering column stalks, as are the digital display menu, the TraXon automated gearbox and audio and phone functionalities. Secondary driving functions are operated from physical switches which are logically positioned on the dashboard and are easy to operate. This approach guarantees the driver to focus on the road, which is the starting point for optimal safety.
Large windows, ultra-low window belt lines and for instance the practical kerb view window result in a new standard for direct vision. And with a robust cab structure, class-leading ergonomics and smart features to make driving even safer, the New Generation DAF trucks are the industry leaders when it comes to road safety.
From the driveline to the suspension, from the cab interior to the seats and bunks, we’ve seized every opportunity to give drivers superb driver comfort. The result is the smoothest ride on the market combined with the best environment for driving, relaxing and sleeping. The New Generation DAF starts a new era in driver comfort.
Thanks to high torque at low revs, the PACCAR MX-11 and MX-13 engines deliver superb driveability. In addition, the latest generation of TraXon automated gearboxes makes manoeuvring much easier.
The increased cab length takes advantage of a new front chassis design with high torsional stiffness and low weight, contributing to exceptional driver comfort.
