For the second consecutive year, DAF Trucks has been honoured with the title of ‘Fleet Manufacturer of the Year’ at the prestigious Fleet News Awards 2024 in London.

DAF received three awards during the Fleet News Awards 2024 in London.

The Fleet News Awards ceremony is held each year to recognize and honour top-performing companies and trucks in the truck fleet industry. The jury consists of an independent panel of business professionals.

Fleet Manufacturer of the Year

Once again DAF Trucks has been awarded ‘Fleet Manufacturer of the Year’. The judging panel commented: “With the support of its excellent dealer network, DAF once again proves it has the best product and service offering for fleet and transport managers.”

Best Rigid Trucks

Thanks to the successful LF and XD models, DAF received no less than two ‘Best Rigid Truck’ awards. The LF was named the best rigid in the category up to 12 tons, while the XD was crowned Best Rigid Truck in the segment above 12 tons.

The judges were impressed with the LF: “The LF, which shares its qualities with the current XB, is an excellent truck with a proven drivetrain. With its comfortable cab, exceptional manoeuvrability and extensive dealer network, it is the perfect choice for many operators. It is clearly the best-in-class.”

The jury also had high praise for the DAF XD: “The XD has powertrains for all uses with its diesel and electric variants. A modern truck with good tech and visibility which offers an excellent driving environment. DAF has put safety at the forefront.”
