Focus on Transport & Logistics

Permits please!

Permits please!

Delivering more freight per load at lower cost-per-ton than conventional rigs, PBS vehicles (or Smart Trucks as they’re now called) are redefining the way bulk commodities are moved by road both locally and abroad. If you’re a truck owner, you may be wondering how one gets to run such a rig. PAUL COLLINGS investigates the roll-out of Smart Truck permits in South Africa and discovers that it’s not an entirely "closed shop".

Putting the cart before the horse

Putting the cart before the horse

With a “green” carbon tax soon to be implemented on certain classes of vehicles including double cabs and small bakkies what is the outlook for the success of the tax? And, all things considered, does it actually make sense?

 
South Africa’s sub-standard fuel

South Africa’s sub-standard fuel

Since 2008 all new South African vehicles have had to comply with Euro 2 emission specifications. In the European Union (EU), all diesel-powered vehicles adhere to stringent Euro 5 standards. Tiny Mauritius imports all its 50 ppm diesel fuel. Yet this quality of fuel is still not readily available throughout South Africa. We are still at Euro 2 level, a 16-year-old standard. Why have our four refineries not been upgraded? BRUCE CAROLIN reports.

 
Japanese get heavy

Japanese get heavy
