Focus on Transport & Logistics

A future insured

A future insured

On 15 April 2009, the road freight industry and the South African Transport Workers Union (Satawu) reached an agreement that effectively brought to a close the industry’s first wage dispute strike in over six years. NADINE VON MOLTKE looks at the cost of this agreement to the transport industry one year down the line.

 

Focus On Transport and Logistics

FOCUS on Transport and Logistics is a business-to-business magazine that caters for the niche market of commercial transport and logistics in South Africa. Our core target audience is the local trucking industry, from small starter transport operators to medium and large commercial operators and sub-contractors. 

We discuss the various manufacturers catering to the local transport market and the trucks they have on offer; we highlight the tanker and trailer market; we profile operators and various other companies operating within the commercial transport sector; and we report on the various issues affecting local transport. 

Our niche trucking and transport magazine addresses everything transport operators and fleet managers need to know about the state of commercial transport in South Africa.
Let FOCUS keep you informed and up-to-date!

 
The future and beyond

The future and beyond

New technology is constantly hitting the market, and the transport industry is no different. FRITZ HELLBERG examines how this technology is benefiting local commercial transport.

 
The walk to recovery

The walk to recovery

Money (or, rather, finance) really does make the world go round. So - as truck manufacturers and operators discovered during 2009 - there can be multiple repercussions when that finance suddenly dries up. NADINE VON MOLTKE evaluates how the local trucking market has responded to this challenge.

   
The year of tightened belts

The year of tightened belts

The annual Econometrix conference is an important one for South Africa’s business community. STUART MOIR was there to find out what the experts make of Pravin Gordhan’s budget speech and the year ahead.

 
Aluminium school fees

Aluminium school fees

The production and application of aluminium has changed significantly during the last 20 years. Designers and fabricators have learned difficult lessons about the ways in which the metal should – and shouldn’t – be used. FOCUS examines some of them.

 
The most precious metal is the world

The most precious metal is the world

Although aluminium is widely used today, it wasn’t as popular when it was first produced. For almost 100 years, aluminium was too expensive to be widely adopted. While it did find its way onto a few royal dinner tables in the 1800s, it wasn’t until the 1900s that it became popular as an industrial material. GG VAN ROOYEN tracks aluminium’s rocky road to success.

   
Talking power, too

Talking power, too

In his previous article, JAKE VENTER showed that, when rotation takes place in an engine, the work done is equal to the torque multiplied by the angle turned through. This month, he continues to look at the relationship between power and torque.

 
Getting on the right track

Getting on the right track

The annual South African Bus Operators Association (SABOA) conference tends to be a good marker of what’s happening in the world of local public transport. When NADINE VON MOLTKE attended the event, she  found positive and negative developments in equal measure.
