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!

April 26th: Media Statement from Limpopo Media Centre, Corporate Communication, South African Police Service

The Police in Phalaborwa have launched a massive manhunt for a group of community members who went on rampage last night and torched trucks and barricaded roads. It is alleged that last night, 25 April 2017 at about 22:00, a group of people started barricading the roads along Makhushane cross and the Police reacted swiftly after receiving a report. On arrival at the scene, members found that four trucks, belonging to different companies, were set on fire and completely burnt. Seven other trucks were safely escorted out of the parking depot to the mine (PMC). Cases of malicious damage to property and public violence were opened and the situation is still being monitored. The preliminary investigations have revealed that the motive behind this situation is allegedly related to their previous complaints against the local mines. The suspects are still unknown and there are no arrests. Police investigations are still continuing.

April 25th: Protest action continued in the Lichtenburg Coligny area today with a number of houses being burnt. FleetWatch yesterday advised transporters to avoid the towns as trucks - being easy targets - have already been burnt to ashes by protestors. We again urge all transporters to keep their trucks away from Lichtenburg and Coligny. The situation is still tense. The protests are about the lack of service delivery with locals saying they have been waiting for over 10 years for houses and other promises made to them. They want the Mayor to resign with statements being made that the protests will continue until he does. These photographs - screened from various sources - aptly show the scale of the violence that has accompanied the protests. Keep your trucks away.
