DAF dream truck for driver Jan Maasdam
"I already drove a DAF when I started as a truck driver in my grandfather's transport company"
Truck driver Jan Maasdam has his dream truck: DAF’s top version. It is the XF 530, ‘fully loaded’ and equipped according to his wishes.
Maasdam has been in the tank container transport for a year now. Before that, it was fifteen years of transporting general cargo. "I cover more than 100,000 kilometers per year, with mainly regional journeys between the ports of Rotterdam, Moerdijk and Antwerp. A very few times I have a trip to Scandinavia. I really consider that as an outing. "
"I went for an XF 480 to replace my almost eight-year-old XF 105,460, which incidentally covered 900,000 kilometers without any problems," according to Maasdam. "Actually, it was already in my mind that one day I would want to drive a 530."
DAF convinces through combination of factors
Jan is loyal to DAF and that is thanks to a combination of factors. "It’s a great brand. I already drove a DAF when I started as a truck driver in my grandfather's transport company. And the DAF-dealer gives me great support. That’s why I am so satisfied. "
The delivery of the new DAF XF 530 took place at the DAF factory in Eindhoven. As a special and loyal customer, Maasdam was welcomed for an extensive tour.
