DAF is celebrating 20 years of PACCAR Financial Europe (PFE), which offers DAF customers in-house financing expertise and tailor-made solutions to meet their transportation needs in the European market.
From starting in the UK, Netherlands, Germany, Belgium, France, Spain and Italy, PFE now operates in 16 countries across Europe, including Ireland, and finances one in three new DAF trucks, according to the company.
Over time PFE has enhanced its range of products with additional services, such as repair & maintenance, insurance, road tax and more recently successfully started cross-border financing.
Today PACCAR Financial Services Europe, which includes PacLease in Europe, has more than 55,000 trucks in its portfolio. As well as financing, PFE also organises used truck remarketing for both DAF and PFE from a growing number of DAF used truck centres all across Europe.
For enterprises looking for a smart deal, PFE offers First Choice trucks; nearly-new used trucks for an affordable price including a one-year First Choice manufacturer’s warranty with the option of a Driveline Warranty or even a Full Warranty.
Gerrit-Jan Bas, managing director of PFE says: “Our roots are in the truck and transport industry and because we are completely dedicated to this sector through all the business cycles, we truly understand the customers and their needs. That’s what really differentiates us from the independents; we know this business like the back of our hand.”
