Walkers Transport gets mirrorless DAF XFs

Walkers Transport has taken delivery of eight new DAF XF 480 trucks featuring Digital Vision System, replacing the wing mirrors as part of a fleet upgrade.

The DAF XF 480 tractor units include large cabs and are specified with smart safety features including City Turn Assist and Electronic Park Brake.

As part of the order, a ninth XF 480 will join the haulier’s fleet in December.

Supplied by Asset Alliance on three-year contract hire deals, the new vehicles join a fleet of 120 trucks and 220 trailers at Walkers Transport.

The trucks will be based at its Manchester depot, distributing goods through The Pallet Network and carrying out general haulage work across the UK.
