DJ Morgan Transport accepts DAF CF530 delivery

Townsville-based family transport company, DJ Morgan Transport, has taken delivery of four new DAF CF530 prime movers.

The new DAFs were recently purchased to bolster the fleet dedicated to a Bega milk contract.

As part of this contract, the new units have been put to work with an existing fleet supplying all of Bega’s distribution centres from Mackay through to Mossman and out to Mount Isa.

Additionally, its Tip Top bread contract requires the fleet carry goods from Brisbane all the way through to Cairns and out to Mount Isa.

The CF530s, fitted with 16-speed ZF automated manual transmissions (AMT), tow refrigerated B-double trailers with Concessional Mass Limits (CML) of 65 tonne.

In their freight tasks, the trucks travel anywhere up to 5,000 kilometres per week.

DJ Morgan Transport founder, David Morgan, told Prime Mover the units arrived just three weeks ago and have already made their mark.

“Fuel economy is one of the standout features on these units, and they’re just a really nice truck to drive,” he said.

“They’re not very complicated and their manoeuvrability and driver acceptance is just great.”

The fleet also has past experience with DAF’s XF range, which Morgan said was a major contributor to returning to Brown and Hurley for another set.

“We already had another nine DAFs previous to this purchase, and for our European trucks, DAF are the truck that we purchase now,” he said.

“We made a conscious decision to purchase more DAFs because we were impressed with how the previous ones worked and what they did.”

The availability of the units, Morgan said, was also beneficial.

“The availability on the last XFs was just really good, and the dealer made it a lot easier to buy the product this time around as well.”

Along with DJ Morgan Transport’s Bega contract, it holds a Woolworths contract which sees the fleet travel from Sarina, south Queensland, through to Mossman in the north and out to Mount Isa.
