FleetWatch was launched in 1993 initially as a fleet risk management journal, and has since evolved into a trucking magazine covering all aspects of the trucking industry with the primary focus on the “issues” facing modern day truckers. The magazine operates under a banner of independent and objective journalism while striving to elevate the trucking industry onto a platform of high priority within the context of the South African economy. We regard ourselves as partners in the industry rather than just mere reporters on the business of trucking. Our prime readership target is aimed at management operating in all areas of transport - ‘professional haulage’ for reward as well as ancillary operators who run transport as part of their overall operations. Many companies have followed the modern trend of outsourcing their transport and the suppliers of such services are also addressed as our target audience. We also get to product suppliers and service providers. The latest Audit Bureau of Circulation figures (January - June 2009) certifies our current distribution at 5 050 copies per month. FleetWatch was voted by the Specialist Press Association as South Africa’s Best Transport magazine six years in a row - 1994, 1995, 1996, 1997, 1998 & 1999. The magazine has won 60 awards for publishing and journalistic excellence since its launch in 1993 - the most ever won by any magazine in the history of MPASA. (Magazine Publishers Association of South Africa). To get in touch with us, please make use of the FEEDBACK form posted on our site or call us on +27 11 794 2490 – we’d love to hear from you! In the meantime, we leave you with the highest Irish wish: “May the wind be always at your back”. Keep on Trucking, Patrick O’Leary Publisher and Managing Editor

BPW Axles has issued the following statement: “It is with great sadness that we say farewell to our dear friend and colleague Terence Kruger who boldly fought his battle with cancer but unfortunately passed away during the evening of Thursday, 23 July 2015. Terence epitomised the meaning of the word “Dapper” which in German means: Strong/Stout; In Afrikaans it means: Brave and Courageous, never giving up the fight; In English it means: Smart, neat, well dressed, well groomed, elegant and dashing. Terence was a true and devoted Ambassador of BPW for 15 years and will be sorely missed. FleetWatch knew Terence for many years and extends its sincerest condolences to his family and his colleagues both within BPW and in the wider trucking industry. RIP good friend. You will be missed but always remembered with great fondness.

A man was killed this morning after a truck burst into flames on the R56 in Richmond, outside of Pietermaritzburg, KwaZulu Natal. ER24 paramedics were called to the scene and on their arrival, found a wreckage of a truck parked on the side of the road. The cargo of wooden beams were spread across the entire scene. Prior to the arrival of paramedics, fire services had extinguished the fire which had broken out when the truck collided with a rock embankment. When paramedics assessed the lone occupant, they found the man had already succumbed to his multiple fatal burn wounds. Nothing more could be done for the patient and he was declared dead. Fire services had to use the jaws-of-life equipment to later free the trapped body. Local authorities were on scene for further investigations. RIP brother trucker and our sincere condolences to the family.
