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

Take it easy out there guys. It hasn’t been a good weekend so far for trucking with five people killed and 23 injured in four crashes involving trucks.
It started on Friday afternoon when two men were killed and two others injured when three trucks collided on the N11 near Loskop Dam, Mpumalanga. When ER24 paramedics arrived on the scene at around 16h20, they found one truck lying on its side across the road while the other two trucks were lying wrecked in the roadside ditch (see first picture below). The bodies of two men were found lying trapped inside one of the trucks. Unfortunately, nothing could be done for the men and they were declared dead. Two other patients, a man and woman, were found to have sustained only minor injuries and were treated and then transported to nearby hospitals. Rescue services had to later use specialised rescue equipment to free the two deceased from the vehicle. The cause of the crash is not known.
Later on Friday, 14 people were left injured when a truck rear-ended a bakkie on the R21 in Pierre Van Ryneveld, north of Johannesburg. When ER24 paramedics arrived on the scene, they found the people who had been on the back of the bakkie lying around the overturned vehicle. Fourteen had sustained injuries ranging from minor to moderate. Fortunately, no serious or fatal injuries were reported on the scene.
On Saturday morning a man, believed to be in his 30s, was killed when his truck overturned on the R33 in New Hanover outside of Pietermaritzburg. ER 24 paramedics arrived on the scene at around 09h27 and found the truck, which was carrying ore, lying on its side on the side of the road. The body of the driver was lying trapped beneath the cab of the truck. Rescue services had to use specialised equipment to lift the truck and free the man. He had sustained numerous injuries and showed no signs of life and was declared dead on the scene. It is believed that the driver lost control of the vehicle causing it to crash into the side of the road and eject the driver, trapping him beneath the vehicle.
The horror continued when later on Saturday morning, two people were killed and seven others injured in a multiple vehicle collision involving two trucks and three light motor vehicles on the R21 northbound, before the Atlas turnoff in Benoni, Johannesburg (see pictures below). ER24 paramedics, who attended along with other services, found the vehicles spread across the entire highway. A man in the first light motor vehicle and an elderly woman in the second vehicle had both sustained numerous injuries and showed no signs of life. They were declared dead on the scene. Seven other patients were found on the scene with injuries ranging from minor to moderate. They were treated and transported to various hospitals in the area for further treatment. It is understood that one driver had swerved to avoid a pedestrian running across the road. This caused the truck to jump the centre medium and veer into oncoming traffic.
FleetWatch extends its sincere condolences to the families and friends of the people who died in these crashes and we pray that the injured have a speedy recovery. To all our truck driver friends, please take care out there.
