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

Hollard toasts the best of the best!

There was something significantly apt when the announcement of the 2018 Hollard Highway Heroes was heralded in with an energetic performance by a group of Gumboot dancers at a function held in Johannesburg recently. Just as there was a deeper intent behind…

This clearly shows the importance of clearly marked reflective tape. You not only able to see the truck clearly but you also able to see the exact width of the truck.

Dec 15th - 8.00pm: Just got a call from a motorist about 80 kay's Cape Town side of Laingsburg on the N1. About six trucks riding on each others backsides not leaving any gap between them for motorists to overtake. And when there is a gap, they trying to overtake each other. C'mon truckers. You can do better than that. You got families out there not as used to the road as you are. You giving them 132metres overtaking distance instead of 22 meters. Leave gaps between each truck and help them through. Look after the little 'uns. Get those gaps in place and chill out for them.

Dec 11th: Not sure about you but at FleetWatch we’re still hard at it hitting the keyboards and pumping the action button before the country shuts down for the Festive Season. Of course, one sector that never closes is the trucking sector with thousands of truckers out on the road taking the goodies to holiday venues around the country so that holiday-makers can enjoy their chops and their dops. For those of you behind the wheels and still at your desks, here’s an early Christmas greeting from the full team at the OneLogix Group who got into the Festive Spirit after launching the first PBS tanker on the market. The launch last week was a great celebration of innovation and achievement which ended with jolly round table camaraderie which we decided to share with all in the industry. So here’s good wishes to all in the industry from the good folk at OneLogix United Bulk and the rest of the merry crew – including Dave van Graan from MAN Automotive.
