St van den brink

The DAF CF and XF drive smoothly, shift well, have nice torque at low revolutions, and offer low fuel consumption.


The St vd Brink fleet has around 500 trucks, so it is undoubtedly one of the largest in the Netherlands. Owner Alex van den Brink is very happy with the DAF CFs and XFs in his fleet. "The DAF truck is not only extremely economical with fuel, but also helps us to retain good drivers in this challenging labour market."



Alex van den Brink - Owner

The family business has worked successfully with DAF for many years already. Van den Brink: "Both parties have complete trust in each other. But DAF's claim that we would be able to make fuel savings of 7% with the DAF CF and DAF XF compared to previous models was a little hard to believe. In practice, though, they are absolutely correct. We are actually saving more than 7%, which translates to an annual saving of one million litres of fuel, or one million euro."

But there is another reason why the company is embracing the DAF CF and DAF XF. "At the moment, we are finding it very difficult to recruit and to retain good drivers. Buying DAF trucks for them makes them really happy."



Driver Harry van der Bunt

Driver Harry van der Bunt is delighted with his DAF. He drives an XF: "A great truck like this means that you enjoy your job more. It's so quiet. This truck makes my job easier. I'm much more relaxed when I reach my destination. My XF is fantastic." His colleague Frank Hop adds: "It's an absolutely top-quality product. You feel it. You notice it. Changing gear is smooth, the revs stay low. I'm proud of my DAF CF."
