What a show!

The 2011 Johannesburg International Motor Show upheld its reputation as a world-class display of the latest commercial vehicles and buses, writes VIC OLIVER.

 

Going green: now is the time

Triton Express – a large road transport company – has taken the initiative to reduce its carbon footprint and create a safer working environment in our trucking industry. On behalf of the entire FOCUS team, I would like to congratulate them.

 

Improving on driver delivery

To improve safety and optimise performance and fuel consumption, dealers and manufacturers need to improve their new vehicle delivery and handover procedure, especially for extra heavy commercial vehicles and buses.

 

No more old boys club

It is time for the Institute of Road Transport Engineers and the Road Freight Association to become more proactive in assisting the government in finding and implementing quicker solutions to the problems that face road transport operators

   

Costly unnecessary accidents

In these tough economic times long distance road transport operators can no longer afford to have their vehicles off the road due to unnecessary accidents.

 

Don’t neglect essential checks

Based on more than 500 heavy vehicle audits over the past six years, I have found that the most neglected components on these vehicles were batteries, tyres and radiator coolants

 

The way to go: auto or manual transmission?

With more truck manufacturers fitting automated manual transmissions into their vehicles, today’s potential buyers are able to select manual transmission, automated manual transmission, or a fully automatic transmission on some models.

   

Truck drivers need to earn their wages!

To justify higher wages truck drivers need to take more responsibility to ensure that their vehicle is more productive and safe on the road.

 

Vehicle uptime

In these tough economic times vehicle uptime, or vehicle availability to do the job, has become a key requirement in many fleets.

 

Selecting truck bodies and cranes – a veritable minefield

It is extremely important to ensure that you select a good truck bodybuilder when buying your next truck, says VIC OLIVER
