Freight Rover was a British commercial vehicle manufacturer based in Birmingham, England, United Kingdom.
Under later company organisation changes Freight Rover became part of the Leyland Trucks division of BL.
In 1987 the Leyland Trucks division of, what was by then, the Rover Group (following the renaming of BL in 1986), merged with the Dutch truck company DAF Trucks, to form the new independent DAF NV company which soon after was floated on the Dutch stock market. The British arm of the new company traded as Leyland DAF, with two main sites in the UK: the truck plant in Leyland and the vans plant in Birmingham.
