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

MAN Truck and Bus today celebrated the awarding of the first MAN TopUsed franchise to Port Elizabeth Truck and Bus Centre, one of the AAD Group dealerships. According to Emir Solapgir, head of MAN TopUsed, this is the first franchised dealer outside of the MAN group to be awarded a TopUsed franchise. He said they will be looking to expand even further around the country. According to Mike Elsbury, director of AAD Truck and Bus Group, they have up to now been "wary" of dealing in the used truck market. "However, with the back up support of MAN we know what we are buying and can sell with confidence," he said. Seen here is Geoff du Plessia, MD of MAN Truck and Bus (left) and Sash Mitchell, dealer principal of Port Elizabeth Truck and Bus Centre. A good day for all.
