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

ACSA what's your excuse this time. Last time i was here the queue was horrendous due to construction taking place at the other customs exits. That is long over. So why the hold up now. And more counters unmanned than manned. Eieeesh. People getting edgy here. Cmon ACSA. It can't be that difficult. Didn't you get an international award of excellence. Not sure why?

July 21st: Two men were injured this morning, one critically, when a truck and light motor vehicle collided on the R54 outside of Fochville. ER24 paramedics, along with other services, were dispatched to the scene at approximately 09h26 and found that both vehicles had sustained a large amount of damage in the collision. The male truck driver was walking around on the scene while another man, believed to be in his 50s, was found lying trapped inside the light motor vehicle. Rescue services used specialized rescue equipment to free the man. Once freed, paramedics found that the man had sustained several injuries and was in a critical condition. The driver of the truck was assessed and found to have sustained serious injuries. Paramedics treated the men and provided both with advanced life support interventions. The critically injured man was later airlifted to a private hospital in Johannesburg by the ER24 Oneplan Helicopter. The second man was transported by ambulance. The details surrounding this incident are not yet known but local authorities were on the scene for further investigations.
