Focus on Transport & Logistics

Nampo rocks Free State

Nampo rocks Free State

Nampo’s annual Harvest Day continues to attract farmers in their droves from across the length and breadth of South Africa. FOCUS travelled to the outskirts of Bothaville in the Free State to find out what the hype’s all about.

 
Mercedes-Benz on a winning streak

Mercedes-Benz on a winning streak

Mercedes-Benz Commercial Vehicles is the envy of many local truck and bus manufacturers... and for good reason. Whether the market in its totality rises or falls, Mercedes-Benz continues to dominate the commercial vehicle sector.

 
Still legendary

Still legendary

When it comes to the name Ranger, “ Built Ford Tough” immediately springs to mind – not to mention expectations of a great driving experience. FOCUS grabs the stylish Ranger 3.0 TDCi XLE 4x4 by the horns to find out for itself...

Guesswork gone

Guesswork gone

As a business tool, a commercial vehicle is an unpredictable asset, exposed to all manner of risk as it executes its daily duties out there in the traffic. Accidents, hijackings, breakdowns, errant drivers, excessive fuel consumption and mysterious vehicle damage all serve to keep fleet owners awake at night, wondering “where?”, “why?” and “how?”.

Every afternoon we would run up to the road to watch him go by in his beautiful four-wheeled machine.

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?
