The 35-year-old reports that for four straight years, the company has continued to grow by around 50 percent. According to Hegelmann, growth is not an end in itself, but a requirement of the market and the wish of the customers, who demand European transport solutions from a single source.
Happier drivers with DAF trucks
Hegelmann places its trust in vehicles from DAF Trucks because it has recognised that satisfied drivers make a positive contribution to the company. In the face of a constant shortage of drivers, good equipment and spacious cabins for long-distance driver are the basis for greater job satisfaction.
"Seeing things from the customer's point of view"
Speaking about the partnership with DAF, Siegfried Hegelmann said that: "We have the feeling that DAF sees things from the customer's point of view. Whether at the dealership or directly with the manufacturer, our concerns and needs are taken seriously. Moreover, the company goes beyond providing reliable and economical commercial vehicles, and always tries to ensure maximum flexibility with financing, maintenance and repair services as well."
As satisfied drivers are the entire capital of the large Hegelmann fleet, the management board appreciates the outstanding „driver image of the DAF brand.
Hegelmann drivers call the vast network of European highways their home so it is important that they know they can count on a spacious cabin and a comfortable bed.
