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!

May 22nd: And here it is. The long awaited new Actros was launched yesterday in South Africa and the initial verdict from a number of transporters who attended the launch is that its a beauty with features that are sure to attract the interest of many. FleetWatch will be taking a close look at the offerings in our next edition but in the meantime, how's this: fuel consumption is cut by 6% to 7% over its predecessor. That's huge money added to the bottom line. It's all packaged under the banner of Road Efficiency but we'll go into that in greater detail in our main magazine article. Until then, here she is.

May 15th: Trends are showing that another massive fuel price hike is likely at the end of May. This is according to the Automobile Association (AA), which was commenting on unaudited mid-month fuel price data released by the Central Energy Fund. "Last month's fuel price account was closed earlier by the Department of Energy resulting in the postponement of a substantial 50 cent-per-litre increase brought on by a weakening Rand and rising international oil prices at the end of April," the AA explains. "However, this means the country started the month (May) with a substantial fuel price deficit. In the first half of May, the fuel picture has continued to worsen, with steep oil price rises and on-going weakness of the Rand against the US dollar." According to the AA, South African fuel users are currently facing increases of 81 cents a litre for diesel, 74 cents a litre for petrol and 78 cents for paraffin. The AA expresses its concerns over the impact of these price hikes on the economy. "Rises in the fuel price increases the cost of doing business and companies have few options but to pass these costs on to consumers. The deferred loss from last month will be included in this month's adjustment, which is currently looking to be substantial," the Association concludes.
