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

Sept 15th: Yet another substantial fuel price rise is on the horizon with the Automobile Association (AA) predicting a month-end price hike of up to 33 cents a litre for diesel and 35 cents a litre for petrol. Commenting on unaudited mid-month fuel price data issued by the Central Energy Fund (CEF), the AA says that for the first time in a while, the Rand has shown reasonable strength against the US dollar during one of its reporting periods. “However, this is not enough to counter rampant increases in the international prices of fuels, which have risen by up to six percent in the past two weeks. Without the benefit of Rand strength, the increase per litre would have been up to 50 cents in some cases. We are now seeing what we believe is the beginning of some Rand weakness and the current picture may deteriorate by month-end."
