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

BPW Axles has issued the following statement: “It is with great sadness that we say farewell to our dear friend and colleague Terence Kruger who boldly fought his battle with cancer but unfortunately passed away during the evening of Thursday, 23 July 2015. Terence epitomised the meaning of the word “Dapper” which in German means: Strong/Stout; In Afrikaans it means: Brave and Courageous, never giving up the fight; In English it means: Smart, neat, well dressed, well groomed, elegant and dashing. Terence was a true and devoted Ambassador of BPW for 15 years and will be sorely missed. FleetWatch knew Terence for many years and extends its sincerest condolences to his family and his colleagues both within BPW and in the wider trucking industry. RIP good friend. You will be missed but always remembered with great fondness.
