UK / Netherlands – GB DAF, an official UK service partner of Dutch truck manufacturer, DAF Trucks Ltd, has opened a 1.6-acre service centre at the Daventry International Rail Freight Terminal (DIRFT) costing GBP 3.2 million, bolstering the company’s aftermarket footprint in the UK.

The facility includes a 15,000-square-foot workshop with the necessary infrastructure to service traditional internal combustion engine powered trucks as well as electric and hydrogen-powered vehicles. There are five, 28-metre long, fully equipped workshop bays and an outside parking area for 12 full-length tractor-trailer articulated vehicles.
