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

September 27th: Two men were arrested following a high speed chase on Sunday night. Shortly after 21h00, a truck was reported to have been stolen from the Maydon Wharf area in Durban. The vehicle taken was fitted with a tracking device monitored by Matrix Tracking. A signal was found on the N2 heading north and Marshall Security’s Special Operations team were called in to assist. The vehicle was found headed on the M41 towards Mount Edgecombe and in a joint effort between Matrix Tracking and Marshall Security, a high speed chase ensued, resulting in the driver of the stolen truck losing control and crashing into the fence of a shopping centre in the area. Two suspects were arrested on site and were handed over to the South African Police Services for further investigation and processing. Well done to Matrix Tracking and Marshall Security.

September 20th: Two men have been killed this evening after two trucks collided on the R549 near Deneysville. ER24 paramedics, along with other services, arrived on the scene and found the two wrecked trucks and trailer in the middle of the road. Debris from the two vehicles were spread across the scene, blocking off the road. On assessment, paramedics found one man lying trapped inside of one of the trucks while the body of another man lay amongst the wreckage. Both men were assessed and found to have sustained numerous fatal injuries. Unfortunately, nothing more could be done for either patient and they were both declared dead on scene. It is believed that one of the trailers came loose, causing one of the trucks to lose control and collided with the other truck. Local authorities were on scene for further investigations. RIP and FleetWatch extends sincere condolences to the family and friends of the deceased.
