DAF signs quarter-millionth MultiSupport deal

DAF Trucks has reached the milestone of 250,000 DAF MultiSupport Repair & Maintenance service contracts.

The quarter-millionth contract was signed by the Scandinavian-German company Baton Transport for a DAF XG that will be used on international routes all across Europe.

DAF MultiSupport provides transport operators with a perfectly maintained fleet and maximum vehicle availability at a fixed price per kilometre.

There are four service packages available, varying from preventive maintenance right up to all conceivable repair and maintenance services.

With eight offices in Europe, Baton Transport has chosen DAF MultiSupport Full Care contracts as standard for its DAF fleet, which comprises more than 90 vehicles, including a growing number of the New Generation DAF XF, XG and XG⁺ trucks.

Claus Hansen, CEO at Baton Transport said: “When purchasing trucks, our most important criteria 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 in the long term and guarantee maximum uptime, while minimising workshop invoices. DAF’s tailor-made repair and maintenance service contract allows us to get on with our core business.”
