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

Dinner meeting with IRTE by candlelight

Had a romantic meeting at the Institute of Road Transport Engineers monthly gathering earlier tonight. All by candle-light thanks to Eskom. Chick sitting next to me seemed quite nice so I reached out in the dark but it turned out to be a big burly bloody trucker. “Hey, wat maak jy? Ek bliksem vir jou one time jou etter.” Only joking. He must have also thought I was a chick as he actually took my hand and held it. Still joking. Not joking though is about Eskom power outages. Second night in a row where a meeting had to make do without Eskom power. Tonight was the IRTE. Last night was the Council of Supply Chain Management Professionals where I was privileged to be the guest speaker on the topic ‘The Road Transport Industry - its Current Status and its Future.” It was held at the SAP offices in Woodmead where a generator substituted for the lack of Eskom power. Thank you for nothing Eskom but also, thank you for nothing to those bright politicians who, many years ago, decided not to build power stations to cater for South Africa’s future growth but rather to invest in housing for the poor, such as Nkandla. It was actually a little scary driving around Bedfordview earlier tonight in the dark looking for a way back onto the highway after getting caught in the traffic which had jammed from the evacuation of Eastgate due to a bomb scare. Amazing – no power, bomb scares in shopping centres and then, at the IRTE meeting, talks about no controls or standards on non-OEM aftermarket safety critical ‘pirate’ parts. Great place South Africa has become!!!!
