    Working Hours & Overtime - Fuel transport / Trucking

    What are the Working Hours & Overtime specifically for the Fuel transport / Trucking industry
    I want to go into diesel/ petrol tankers and normally i have seen that drivers work 3 weeks in and 1 week off in a month

    But, not sure what the exact / legal working hours are in that industry as the drivers will definetely have to do lots of KM driving and mostly one can not cover the distances in ordinarly 8 hour shift.
    For example, JHB to Durban and back (there is shortage of fuel inland and it has to be loaded from Durban and sent up to JHB)

    I see there's a Road Freight Association which should be able to give some guidance.

    I also see there's a collective agreement in place for the road freight industry.
    The trouble with opportunity is it normally comes dressed up as work.
