Müller Holten running one of its DAF CF Space Cab tractors. The Dutch company once used mainly Scania and some Volvos. Nowadays other brands are just as popular. Prizing of Scania dealers is an often heard complaint. It's something to think about....
Aldi Nord and Süd in German are mainly relying on combos for its distribution work. In Holland, most of this work is done by tractor semi-trailer combos. It seems this can be decided on regional bases, no9t very common in the hierarchical company!
The small LF is selling well in Holland but lacks the international succes of similar trucks from other brands. Neverless DAF keeps believing in it resulting in continous development. The cab is most likely the first point of attention, its bought from Renault.
Not often seen, a small Nissan truck. The sold numbers are very limited despite attractive pricing. The design isn't spectacular but more functional, its building quality isn't a hurdle as well. The biggest problem is most likely driver acceptance in Europe.
D-trans from Russia is relying strongly on MAN trucks for its international reefer transport. Of course, MAN is offering excellent trucks and a strong and stable dealer network all over Europe. The traditional behaviour of MAN could be also important for the Russian owner
XPO Logistics, the new name of Norbert Dentressangle. This picture is showing a rebadged Renault Premium hooked to a reefer semi-trailer. US-based companies were not that successful in the pas accessing the European market, we have to see what's happening this time.
