At DAF we work according to the ‘direct line feeding’ principle: suppliers deliver directly to the assembly lines. As a logistics professional, you ensure that the parts are delivered in the right order, and at the right time in the production process. Our trucks are manufactured according to the build to order principle, so it is of great importance that we can rely on the delivery at the right moments.
Logistics has an important role in the distribution of our trucks as well. Dozens of trucks start their journey to customers all over the world. A logistic operation that requires a great amount of planning and organization.
