Fleetwatch

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

LOOKING FOR NAMES OF TRUCK DRIVERS WHO HAVE PASSED AWAY
Nov 19: Rob Fisher is putting forward some questions in Parliament tomorrow regarding issues around the trucking industry. They are also putting forward a Motion of Condolences for the truck drivers who have passed away in the past six months - either in a crash or attacks out on the road. If you know the name of any truck driver who has passed away, please will you post it here so we can pass it on. The idea is to put names to the statistics to drive home the real tragedy playing out on the roads. Many thanks.

GOOD NEWS FOR PENSIONERS
Nov 17th. Saturday morning and am on the way home after spending an uplifting few hours at Reef Tankers in Germiston watching them motivating their drivers on health and safety- including the adoption of the FleetWatch Your Truck Your Gym proigramme - I have stopped at a BP garage opposite Olivedale Clinic and just spotted some really good news for pensioners which will help save money on your water bill. On every Wednesday pensioners can a get a discount on a full wash and polish. It doesn't say anything about having to bring your car so I'm gonna come here every Wednesday for a shower and polish. I hope they provide towels for us - and that they turn the pressure of those car hoses down as we walk through the wash bay so the body doesn't get bruised. OK OK. I know its weak. Must be the heat wave. Have a great weekend. Nou gaan ons braai.
