About Us

A bi-monthly publication, Diesel magazine is Australia’s premier truck and trailer magazine.  Renown for its extensive feature articles and bold editorial, Diesel magazine was established in 2001 with highly experienced truck journalist Steve Brooks as its founding editor and the intrepid Trevor Herkess as advertising manager.

Late in 2011 it was decided to enter the digital space with the introduction of dieselnews.com.au, a website dedicated to keeping the trucking industry abreast of the latest relevant news as it breaks, in addition to providing an electronic interface for the viewing of Diesel magazine content.

2014 saw the acquisition of Diesel magazine by Melbourne based publisher Prime Creative Media creating the nations leading stable of commercial road transport magazines and digital platforms including Trailer magazine, Prime Mover Magazine, Global Trailer and CRTnews.

Now edited by Tim Giles, with feature writers Paul Matthei in Australia, Brian Weatherley in Europe and Steve Sturgess in the USA, the editorial staff has become the deepest pool of commercial road transport editorial talent in the business including Peter Shields on PrimeMover magazine with Group Managing Editor Sebastian Grote and Editor Bianca Dohnt on Trailer magazine and CRTnews.

Diesel magazine is uniquely positioned in the truck industry as a bold and brave voice showcasing the latest technology and raising issues that are important for drivers, owner operators, fleets and the industry as a whole. Boasting multiple leading edge communication platforms including print and digital magazine, social media and enews networks, Diesel magazine has an unparalleled reach into one of Australia’s most important industries.
