Focus on Transport & Logistics

Scania and Unifreight Transport strike gold

Scania and Unifreight Transport strike gold

For the second consecutive year, Scania exhibited at the Nampo Agricultural Expo held in Bothaville from May 14 to 24. To add to the splendour of the Scania stand, Kobus van Tonder, managing director of Unifreight Transport, took delivery of his two new shimmering R580 V8 “Liquid Gold” limited edition Scanias.

 
Fabulous 40!

Fabulous 40!

As a young boy I remember growing up near Bothaville. The fancy farmer living next door bought one of the very first Hilux 4x4s in South Africa. Every afternoon we would run up to the road to watch him go by in his beautiful four-wheeled machine. After which we would usually say, “Ja boet, one day I’m going to buy one of those trokkies...”

 
Striking a blow

Striking a blow

The strike by members of the SA Transport and Allied Workers’ Union (Satawu) and the United Transport and Allied Trade Union (Utatu) brought some sectors of industry to their knees. Now that it’s over, GERHARD HORN counts the cost.

 
Stepping up

Stepping up

Climate change is not only a very real threat; it is changing the way the world does business. South Africa’s top 100 JSE-listed companies are already reporting their carbon footprints, and it will not be long before all industries will need to follow suit.

   
Are those skid marks?

Are those skid marks?

Skid marks... telltale signs that something went badly wrong. STUART MOIR explores the role of tyre manufacturers, service providers and fleet managers in ensuring that tyres are correctly maintained.

 
Mediums on a march

Mediums on a march

Despite a threat to its market share position from the extra-heavy segment, the medium commercial vehicle (MCV) sector has stood its ground. FRANK BEETON discusses why.

 
“Crippling” tolls on agenda

“Crippling” tolls on agenda

The potentially crippling toll fees mooted by the South African National Road Agency Ltd (SANRAL) will be high on the agenda at this year’s Road Freight Association (RFA) Convention.

   
Testing the waters

Testing the waters

If you live or work in the city of Johannesburg, you’re sure to to have noticed Johannesburg Water vehicles buzzing around. FOCUS chats to the municipal utility about meeting public expectations.

 
Driver healthcare hits the road

Driver healthcare hits the road

Driver wellness has emerged at the forefront of many issues often swept under the carpet. Imagine a young family travelling to Durban on holiday with their new-born baby girl. An exhausted truck driver smashes into their car after falling asleep at the wheel, crushing the vehicle and, with it, the entire family. The baby’s grandparents have lost two beloved children and will never see their first grandchild take her first steps. The driver is permanently disabled. STUART MOIR attends the N3 Toll Concession’s (N3TC) Driver Wellness Day, which aims to help prevent just such a scenario.
