The Future Group is honoured to host the second annual TruckX Conference and Awards, which are taking place on Thursday, July 9 at the Sandton Convention Centre in Johannesburg.

Following the success of the inaugural event, headline sponsor Ctrack, a leading fleet management solutions company, has been joined by Standard Bank – one of South Africa’s leading financial institutions.

Nick Vlok, CEO of DigiCore, the supplier of Ctrack to fleet owners in over 50 countries, adds “TruckX was a new and unique format and we are pleased this has been welcomed by the industry. Given the high level of attendance and positive feedback, we are continuing our involvement and reaffirm our commitment to work with fleet owners and managers in delivering telematics intelligence, addressing new trends as well as connecting with various stakeholders in the sector.”

Toni Fritz, Head of Vehicle and Asset Finance, Business Markets at Standard Bank says “The commercial vehicles market is essential to the transport industry and job creation in South Africa. We are delighted to be part of the TruckX initiative; there couldn’t have been a better way of recognising and appreciating professionalism and excellence in the local freight handling segment. The event will also offer businesses a platform to discuss critical industry issues, developments and opportunities.”

According to Group Motoring Editor Wynter Murdoch, the TruckX Conference and Awards is regarded as one of the country’s foremost thought leadership platforms in the trucking and logistics sectors.

He says this year’s event will again facilitate interactive panel discussions featuring powerful line-ups of industry experts and, for the first time, incorporate an exhibition designed to showcase new and innovative products, technologies and initiatives within the trucking and logistics sectors.

The awards programme – aimed at rewarding excellence – boasts 16 categories which cover a broad array of the key elements which are represented in the fleet, trucking and logistics industries.

With the exciting developments such as the inclusion of a trade expo to the event package and the new venue location at the prestigious Sandton Convention Centre, the 2015 TruckX Conference and Awards will be considerably bigger and better than before, offering members of the trucking and logistics industries a unique opportunity to interact under one roof, right in the heart of Sandton!
