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

Know the road rules. Road rules are there to protect both you and other road users. Make sure you know them and adhere to them at all times. Take a look at the Truckers Manual for all rules and regulations - #FWSafetyTips

Dec 6th: FleetWatch is receiving reports of crashes from all over the country. It seems to have gone mad out there over the past few days. Please everyone, take it easy. Here are just two examples of crashes which occurred in the early hours of this morning. The first took place on the N1 south past the Glen off ramp heading towards Bloemfontein where, it is understood, one truck crashed into a stationary truck's trailer. On arrival at the scene, ER24 paramedics found a man believed to be in his 20's trapped in one of the trucks. Fire and Rescue used the Jaws of Life to extricate the man from the vehicle. Upon assessment of the man, it was found that he sustained injuries to the head and a partial amputation to his left leg. He was provided with advanced life support treatment and transported to hospital for further medical care. (The first three pictures are of this crash; the following two are of the second crash described here). The second crash also resulted in one man being injured following a collision involving two trucks on the N12 outside Fochville. When paramedics arrived on the scene, they found a man lying on the road. He was assessed and found to have sustained moderate injuries. He was treated and transported to hospital for further medical care. The exact cause is unknown and authorities were on the scene for further investigation. Thankfully, no-one was killed in these two crashes but there have been many deaths over the past few days. Please take it easy out there. It’s looking bad at the moment.
