Fleetwatch

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

Came up behind this truck on the N1 near Beyers Naude offramp hauling bales of plastic bottles - obviously for recycling. Saw paper etc flying off and then some plastic bottles. One of them hit my windscreen. I put foot and pulled him over. Told him he needs to put a net or tarp or some cover over the load. He was a Chinese guy and kept nodding and smiling at me saying 'oooh'. It suddenly struck.me. "Do you understand what I am saying. Do you speak English? 'Oooh' he answered. He hadn't had a clue what I was talking about. I went to my car to get my notepad and drew a diagram of a net and how he must put it over the load. He then understood and broke into a big smile. 'OOOOOH' he said. Eeeish.
