West Road Haulage, Staffordshire based family-owned haulage company, has purchased two New Generation DAF XD 450 rigid trucks. Supplied by local Motus Commercials dealerships in Burton and Derby, these vehicles will enter operation to deliver nationally and internationally, specialising in bulk, industrial and construction haulage. The XDs are a part of the company's fleet expansion, working to provide a more efficient and larger scale service to their customers.

With features such as DAF Corner View, DAF multi- support technology and fall arrest systems, these vehicles are welcomed additions to the fleet.Both vehicles have been fitted with Moffett demountable forklift kits, adapting the trucks to be fit for purpose in their operation. Safety is at the forefront in importance, so the additional passenger door side window and a DVS 4 Star rating were essential to protect the drivers and the longevity of the vehicles. West Road Haulage are FORS Silver Accredited, demonstrating their commitment to safety and operational excellence, which is consolidated towards their acquisition of the new vehicles.

Kelly Osborn, Managing Director at West Road Haulage, commented 'Motus Commercials offer a high level of support to West Road Haulage from maintenance and technical support through to assistance in choosing the correct vehicle for our operation and our driver's needs.' Osborn continued, 'We are extremely happy with the overall finish of the trucks and felt confident to go ahead with our order due to the specialist advice from Motus Commercials. High levels of technology, and versatility were our main requirements to suit our customer's needs, and these were definitely covered by the DAF XDs'.

The drivers have found the trucks very comfortable and are very happy with their overall greater vision, adapting quickly to the new camera system after feeling apprehensive towards the change.

Dan Roe, Area Sales Manager at Motus Commercials, added 'It has been a pleasure working with Kelly and West Road Haulage to get the two DAF XD trucks completed and in operation.'

Both trucks have now entered service for West Road Haulage and have already made their truck show debut, being showcased at the recent Truckfest Lincoln.
