Commercial Motor magazine does a great job of offering thorough coverage of the road transport industry – every issue brings you pretty much everything you could ever need to know, with all the latest developments in the sector covered in impressive detail. It was, however, the operations section that particularly caught our eye, offering a look at road haulage in action in a variety of different settings. A good example of this was the article examining the symbiotic relationship of rock bands and haulage – anyone who’s ever been to a big gig knows that there is a huge amount of gear that needs dragging from one place to another, and the large number of shows means that this needs to be done on a tight schedule. The Bon Jovi tour of 2011, for example, used a whopping 43 trucks for their 23 show tour of Europe – lots of gigs means lots of rigs.
It is always fascinating to read about the slightly more niche, slightly more unexpected areas of an industry, and reading a feature on the history of the vehicles used by travelling fairs was no exception to this. Commercial motor therefore moonlights as both a thorough, straightforward trade journal and a genuinely interesting read – handy for those compulsory rest stops. NB
