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

After operating on the drek side of the trucking industry for the past few weeks - accidents, unroadworthy rigs etc - it was so refreshing to see the other side of the coin today in the form of the opening of the new Iveco manufacturing plant in Rosslyn just outside of Pretoria. Known as the Iveco South Africa Works, this stunning plant is the result of an R800-million investment into this world class facility. The production capacity is 6 000 trucks and 1 000 buses a year of which 20% is destined for export markets as from next year. Approximately 1000 jobs are being created at the plant. This facility now gives Iveco a manufacturing footprint on the African continent which it fully intends capitalising on to increase its market share both locally and into Africa. Congratulations to Iveco on this magnificent achievement and thank you for the confidence you have, via this investment, expressed in the future of South Africa.

Two trucks collide – seven killed

Seven people were killed and at least 14 more injured this morning when two trucks collided at the N17 intersection near Ermelo, Mpumalanga. Shortly before 07h00, ER24 paramedics arrived at the intersection and found a mass casualty incident. Two trucks lay in the middle of the intersection while the occupants lay around the two vehicles. On assessment, paramedics discovered that seven people had already succumbed to their injuries including the driver of one of the trucks. At least 14 other patients lay around the scene, their injuries ranging from minor to critical. Paramedics set up a triage area and began treating the patients for their injuries as well as providing the critically injured with advanced life support. Once treated, the patients were transported to Embuleni Hospital for further medical treatment. The cause of the collision is not yet known. (Statement issued by Russel Meiring, ER24 Spokesperson).
