Seeking practical and sustainable solutions to critical issues surrounding the trucking industry

Ctrack, a leading global vehicle tracking and fleet management solutions company, and Standard Bank, one of South Africa’s leading financial institutions, have again teamed up to host the third annual TruckX exhibition and conference taking place on Tuesday, 2 August 2016 at the Sandton Convention Centre. The convention will focus on providing insights to fleet owners and operators in tackling the issues that they face today.

TruckX has grown exponentially since its launch in 2014, with more than 700 delegates that attended last year’s event. This year it will again facilitate interactive panel discussions, featuring a powerful line-up of industry experts to offer businesses a one-day platform to reflect on issues critical to the industry, developments and opportunities.

Speakers that will present at the conference include economist Dawie Roodt, Chief Economist of the Efficient Group, Outa chairman Wayne Duvenage and CEO of RAC Group Eugene Herbert. Popular South African comedian Joey Rasdien will be the Master of Ceremonies to lighten some of the messages.

The event will furthermore include an exhibition which will provide a platform for fleet owners to engage with companies that play a key role in the trucking and logistics sector. Current, new and innovative products, technologies and initiatives will be featured.

Topping the agenda for this year’s conference is analysing local and global industry trends over the last three decades, how the industry transformed and looking into the future. In-depth discussions surrounding the current economic climate and its impact on the industry will also take place, as well as concerns around the safety of truck drivers.

“In the transport world, turnaround time is everything, and as such we appreciate the fact that fleet owners will take time out of their busy schedule to attend this event. Our goal is to provide insightful and relevant information that will add significant value to their day-to-day operations,” said Hein Jordt, MD of Ctrack Fleet Management Solutions.

“With its expertise in transport, fleet management and renewed supplier focus, Standard Bank Vehicle and Asset Finance understands the demands and stresses for industry players, especially in the current economic and regulatory climate,” said Toni Fritz, Head of Vehicle and Asset Finance, Business Markets at Standard Bank. “This is why we are proud to be the main banking sponsor for TruckX for the third year running. Fleet owners can look forward to a comprehensive discussion on the current hot industry topics, new developments and all things trucking to keep you Moving Forward.”
