DAF MultiSupport R&M Contracts hit 50,000
DAF Trucks hits a notable milestone in August as it delivers its 50,000th DAF MultiSupport Repair & Maintenance contract to the UK’s largest bakery brand, Warburtons –signing-up to its 800th DAF MultiSupport contract.
The landmark is reached after DAF Trucks added the in-house repair and maintenance offering to its aftersales portfolio in 2001. DAF Trucks calculates that its assessors and automated systems have since processed 4.25 million claims to date over this same period.
DAF MultiSupport provides a comprehensive range of R&M options – from basic R&M through to full fleet management arrangements – to suit operators’ requirements right across the transport spectrum. Full R&M or Compliance Contracts are available at durations from one to seven years, and occasionally even beyond.
“DAF is an important partner to our business,” said Warburtons’ Group Transport Manager, Mark Sutcliffe, “We have 800 vehicles on DAF MultiSupport contracts and DAF’s locations mirror our own network of sites depots.”
“The high level of service across the DAF Dealer network provides peace-of-mind at a national level and its local coverage ensure vehicle availability is at a consistently high level. This year we’ve been celebrating our 140th anniversary and it’s great to have DAF working with us to ensure our distribution network continues to provide the freshest products available for our consumers on a daily basis.”
Such has been the effectiveness of DAF repair and maintenance in its fleet, Warburtons has extended DAF MultiSupport packages to 95% of its secondary fleet. Furthermore, most of its 80 DAF tractor units are funded through PACCAR Financial.
