OneLogix keeps on trucking with DAF
Having originally bought six DAF trucks in 2012, OneLogix Projex has continued to return to the brand and recently purchased a further 12 DAF trucks.
OneLogix Projex now has 80 DAF trucks in its fleet, which it uses primarily for highway haulage of machines and containerised cargo, both nationally and cross-border.
The new trucks will be used for lowbed and step-deck work for the transportation of yellow machinery. The trucks include hazardous chemical modifications by Babcock to allow them to carry universal products.
Sales executive for Babcock’s Transport Solutions division, Alec Jackson, says that the new order comprises 11 DAF XF105.460s and one DAF XF105.460 hub reduction to pull 75-t lowbeds.
“Five of the new trucks have already been delivered. The DAF XF105.460, in particular, has shown excellent results for OneLogix Projex, currently standing as the best in its fleet in terms of uptime and fuel consumption,” says Jackson.
The strong, service-based relationship between the two companies is one of the driving forces behind the new purchase.
Jackson says that Babcock’s dealer network offers everything from a routine service to tailor-made repair and maintenance contracts. Full aftermarket support and strategically located parts distribution centres support the dealer network by ensuring that parts are always available.
Babcock reports that sales of DAF trucks are buoyant, and accredits this to its seven-year run as exclusive distributor of the brand in the region, combined with strong aftersales support.
