In 2009 OFE Refrigerated Transport purchased a pair of second-hand 2006 DAFs, its first trucks in use from the Dutch commercial vehicle manufacturer. Fast forward 11 years and the cold chain carrier, based in Dandenong South in Melbourne’s southeast suburbs, runs 40 trucks, 30 of which are DAFs including three of the latest generation of Euro 6 DAF CF prime movers.
This recent order follows a three-week long trial in which the business, having sought up-to-the-minute safety features, evaluated a vehicle for the first two weeks in B-double application and then for an additional week hauling a single trailer as part of the company’s refrigeration fleet.

This ensconces the fleet in the wider metropolitan region making its capability to act and adapt to the vagaries of freeway congestion a high priority. Last year OFE Refrigerated Transport purchased several new Euro 5 DAFs as it continued the task of updating its commercial vehicles with state-of-the-art active safety features.
