This picture epitomises the devastation that greeted staff at Honeydew Hino after they emerged from their offices following a ferocious tornado that hit the dealership head-on last Monday, October 9th. Walls collapsed, vehicles were damaged, trees were uprooted, roof tiles flew like confetti all over the property, door panels and shutters were wrenched from their mountings. It was bad. More pictures are shown below. And now the rebuilding begins.

Honeydew Hino dealership battered by Gauteng storm

“It was an horrific experience for our staff. The wind was incredibly violent. It felt as if the building wanted to take off with door panels and roof tiles flying all over. Then, after about a minute, there was calm.

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

Be careful on the road between Ottosdal and Lichtenburg. Criminals are putting nails on the railway crossing. Your tyres are going to get ripped and you will be robbed when you stop. This is the first time FleetWatch has come across this. Be careful out there
