PACCAR Parts Offers DAF Parts Support

PACCAR Parts is supporting the brand new DAF XF and CF trucks with a comprehensive range of DAF Genuine parts across its extensive dealer network and distribution centres.

The recently unveiled next generation DAF XF and CF trucks are a result of extensive redesign and redevelopment in Europe.

The new generation of trucks set new standards in transport efficiency and driver comfort. Innovations including new PACCAR MX-11 and redesigned MX-13 engines, new TraXon automated gearboxes, new rear axles with faster ratios, battery energy monitoring and aerodynamic optimisations result in significantly reduced fuel consumption, according to DAF.

As a result, the total cost of ownership reduces.

“Building on the excellent reputation for fuel efficiency, reliability and driver comfort that the Euro 6 DAF range has earned in Europe, DAF has developed a new generation of XF and CF trucks offering the best possible solutions for both the customer and the driver,” PACCAR Australia sales and marketing director Brad May says.

Following its commitment to supply a full range of genuine DAF parts and accessories, PACCAR Parts has added over 1,600 new parts across its dealership network to complement the New XF and CF trucks.

“The New DAF XF & CF have many new components over our previous Euro 5 generation of truck,” PACCAR Parts DAF & Power Train product manager Stuart Russell says. “PACCAR Parts Australia have been working in collaboration with DAF Trucks and PACCAR Parts Europe to prepare our distribution centres and dealerships to ensure we have exceptional parts coverage across the country.”

With major components such as cabs, engines, engine parts, after treatment systems, transmissions and differentials in stock, PACCAR Australia has added an extra half million dollars in value to the DAF Genuine parts inventory.

“Backed by our extensive and professional dealer network, the new trucks have superseded the existing range with exceptional advancements. We have made great trucks even better. The new generation of our XF and CF range further extends the current trucks’ excellent reliability, fuel efficiency and driver comfort and we have made major steps to further enhance vehicle efficiency. The New XF and CF truly represent ‘Pure Excellence’,” May says.

“Our DAF parts coverage in Australia represent ‘Pure Excellence’ too,” Russell says. “Over 96 per cent of every DAF order is filled from our distribution centres. We can even fly parts from DAF’s hub distribution centre in Eindhoven to our dealers’ door in just three days. This ensures our customers’ trucks can be back on the road as quickly as possible to maximise uptime.”

Uptime is the name of the game

DAF Trucks Australia, a division of PACCAR Australia, assembles and distributes a range of medium and heavy duty trucks through an extensive Australian dealer network. Providing industry-leading sales and aftersales support and services is PACCAR’s commitment to the Australian transport sector, with customer uptime a prime focus.

PACCAR Australia’s network of 57 dealers Australia-wide and two distribution centres are passionate about supporting customers get the right part at critical times to reduce downtime and maximise efficiency.

PACCAR’s dealer network covers all major routes around the country, stocking a wide range of genuine and branded replacement truck parts to fit all models of DAF and Kenworth trucks, and certain US and European drivelines and trailers.
