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

Dec 5th: A passenger in a truck was killed and two others were injured this morning following a collision involving a truck and two light motor vehicles on the N3 highway near the Marrionhill plaza in Pinetown, KwaZulu Natal. Reports from the scene indicate that a truck with a load of scrap metal was traveling south bound when it was involved in a collision with two other vehicles before he crashed through the barriers. The vehicle struck the traffic camera and then overturned down an embankment; its twisted remains came to rest in the North Bound lanes. When ER24 and Netcare 911 paramedics, along with other services, arrived on the scene, they found the body of a lifeless man lying a few metres away from the truck. He was declared dead on the scene. Two other patients were found on the scene. The driver of the truck was heavily entrapped and in a critical condition. A female driver from one of the other vehicles sustained moderate injuries. The rescue officer from Netcare 911 used the Jaws of Life to extricate the driver and worked fervently for about 45 minutes before they were able to remove him from the twisted metal. It is understood that the driver lost control of the truck, causing it to roll over the centre barrier and colliding with a light motor vehicle. Local authorities were on scene for further investigations.
