Critical mass is born


It’s been another pulsating couple of months at Road Ahead magazine, with plans being hatched for a mega event called Critical Mass, at the beautiful Spier Wine Farm in Stellenbosch in February next year.

With crime on the up and hijacking a daily occurrence, the event will delve into solutions for the supply chain, along with a variety of other pertinent topics.

Delegates can expect a special guest appearance from the stars of Big Rig Bounty Hunters on the history channel, Shawn Zimmerman and Vince Jones, all the way from Ohio, USA. They will be discussing what has made them the premier truck retrieval operators in North America, while passing on knowledge to the South African market during their visit.

The likable Americans will be joined by some of the finest minds and leaders from southern African trucking, telematics, forensics, OEM manufacturing/assembly and supply chain risk management, who will take centre stage at this two-day event in Cape Town.

The event will include an exhibition showcasing the companies that matter in the industry, and is set to be a regular date on the trucking and logistics calendar. There will be live demonstrations from some of the experts to add a practical element to the event.

Critical Mass will conclude with a glitzy gala dinner and awards ceremony to cap what is set to be a 'can't miss' event on the logistics calendar. Expect to see all the main players from the wide world of vehicle tracking through to the top OEM brass from southern Africa’s proud manufacturing base, with 500 knowledgeable delegates expected to descend on the Mother City.

With that being said we have included an interview with Zimmerman in this edition – a very interesting cowboy, to say the least. We’ve also got expert opinion pieces and interviews with some of the speakers for Critical Mass like counterfeiting expert Kyle Parker, digital radio insider Tony Sibanda, aviation ace Gerhard van Zyl and telematics wiz Craig Lovell, to give you taste of things to come.

So don’t get left in the dark – find out more about this golden opportunity to showcase your logistics solutions.
