It is with the German and Scandinavian company Baton Transport that the 250,000e DAF Trucks maintenance contract has been signed. It concerns a DAF XG which will be used on international routes throughout Europe. Baton Transport, which owns nearly 400 trucks and employs around 800 people and operates in 12 European countries, has opted for DAF MultiSupport Full Care contracts for its DAF fleet of 90 vehicles.
Claus HansenCEO of Baton Transport points out: “When buying trucks, the determining criteria for us are functionality, driver comfort, safety and total cost of ownership. DAF MultiSupport gives us a clear picture of the overall costs. This means that the trucks will be well maintained over the long term and will ensure maximum uptime, while minimizing workshop costs. DAF’s tailor-made repair and maintenance contract allows us to focus on our core business.”
DAF simplifies fleet management
DAF MultiSupport service contracts are made to measure: each customer can choose the level of service and the duration of the contract, with the possibility of extending the scope of the contract.
The manufacturer then takes over the planning and administration of the maintenance to free up time for the carriers. There are four levels of maintenance contracts, to ensure maximum vehicle availability, with a fixed price per kilometer.
Mike Hoefeijzers, Commercial Services Manager at DAF Trucks comments: “We help our customers save themselves dealing with stacks of invoices and keep their trucks on the road with the quality of our services. DAF MultiSupport guarantees maximum uptime with minimum effort, at a fixed cost per kilometer, improving the efficiency of every haulier. And because a DAF MultiSupport repair and maintenance contract is always tailor-made, every business benefits from the right service contract, whatever its size.”
