The industry is selling itself short

A worrying trend is surfacing in the local truck and bus industry – and if manufacturers don’t do more to encourage emerging job seekers to take up careers in truck and bus sales, it’s going to create problems.

 

Protecting our roads

In the last few months, I’ve had the opportunity to travel on many of our national and secondary roads – and have been alarmed to see how many of our secondary roads are in a very poor state due to a lack of maintenance over the last 20 years and the overloading of vehicles.

   

Tough times and tougher markets?

Interesting and challenging times lie ahead for new commercial vehicle manufacturers and road transport operators, says VIC OLIVER.

 

Durban residents march against truckers

Residents in the Bayhead area of Durban held a protest march recently, calling on truck owners to take responsibility for the deaths, damage to roads and pollution in and around the harbour terminal area. Our heavy vehicle industry cannot afford this type of bad publicity.

Heavy vehicle maintenance contracts are becoming increasingly popular, especially among operators who fully understand the factors affecting the operating costs of their vehicles. VIC OLIVER explains why.

   

Prepare now – fuel price increase will hit hard

Avoiding premature engine failure

With the slowdown in the world economy putting the squeeze on profit margins, bus and truck operators simply can’t afford premature engine failures.

As a truck and bus industry we must do our best to help reduce the unacceptable carnage on our roads, says VIC OLIVER.
