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

May 31: One person has died and the driver of a delivery truck has sustained minor injuries after they collided with another truck on the N1 south near Gordon road, Roodepoort. Reports from the scene indicate that the delivery truck rear ended the other truck. When Netcare911 paramedics and other services arrived on the scene, they found that the passenger from the delivery truck had already died due to the extensive injuries he sustained. The man was declared dead on the scene by a Netcare911 paramedic. The Roodepoort Fire Department assisted paramedics to extricate the deceased passenger from the wreckage. The driver of the truck sustained minor injuries and was transported to a nearby hospital for further medical care. The occupants of the other truck did not sustain any injuries. Police are investigating the exact cause of the accident. FleetWatch extends its condolences to the family of the deceased man. May he Rest in Peace.

May 28th: It has been confirmed that the person who died in the horror head-on between an SUV (BMWX5) and a heavy goods truck in the early hours of this morning on the N1 between Verkeerdevlei and Winburg was the Deputy Executive Mayor of Mangaung, Connie Rampai. She was driving alone in the car when the crash happened. When paramedics from Trauma Response Africa arrived on the scene, they found that the female driver of the SUV was ejected from the vehicle during impact. Sadly there was nothing more that could be done for her and she was declared dead on the scene. The male driver of the truck was treated on the scene before he was transported to Winburg Provincial Hospital by ambulance for further care. Traffic was disrupted for several hours as the scene was cleared. FleetWatch extends its sincerest condolences to the family, friends and colleagues of Mrs Rampai. May she Rest in Peace. A full enquiry will be conducted to establish the exact cause of the crash.

The FleetWatch Brake & Tyre Watch team is on the go again... taking trucks off the road and testing them for road worthiness.

After a day of intensive training in the classroom, the teams of traffic officials are now putting their newly learned skills into practice... a real eye opener for most of them!

Historically, at every Brake & Tyre Watch event an average of 68% of trucks tested are found to be defective or unroadworthy!

What will today's total be? Watch this space.
