Welcome to Corredor Transportes SA (PTY) LTD

Geoff Hicks is a Chartered Accountant who has extensive experience in the transport industry in Mozambique. He started in 1986.

 He set up Corredor Transportes Limitada in Mozambique in 2000, owned by Geoff and Supergroup International. In October 2004 Geoff purchased the balance Corredor Transports Limitada from the Supergroup and floated a SA company, Corredor Transportes SA (Pty) Ltd.

 From day one of operation Corredor Transportes' focus was to service Mozambican destinations ex South Africa, servicing all major cities as well as most out lying areas.

Geoff's experince over the more than three decades in Mozambique, as well as that of his trusted and experienced staff, has made Corredor one of the most reliable transporters in the country.

Geoff has personally travelled to almost every part of Mozambique, taking roads less travelled, and going through the frustrations and experiences Corredor's drivers overcome every day. These excursions involve entering Mozambique at any of its borders, then travelling from eight to ten thousand kilometers over some of the worst roads in Africa. This enables him to cost properly, and to understand the complexities and risks of sending the drivers and trucks into the most remote parts of the country.

If you want to read a bit of history about transport in Mozambique in the 1980's, read the article, "Corredor, the war years" on this website. It details how Geoff used a bullet proof horse to travel from Swaziland to Mozambique in those years.

Today Corredor has some niche abilities, including transporting steel pipes and other extened items up to 24 metres in length. We have ten extendable trailers for this purpose.

Corredor also excells in transporting abnormal loads. One of the most difficult was transporting equipment for the Syrah Resouces graphite mine in Balama, Cabo Delgado. This involved a convoy of  eight trucks with pieces of storage tanks 5.70 metres wide. In many parts of the route we stopped all traffic in both directions, as our loads were almost as wide as the road. When we surveyed the route we came to the Lurio River before  Pemba, and saw that the pillars of the bridge were 5.50 metres wide, just 20 centimetres too litte. We thus had to do a 550 kilometre deviation from Nampula via Cuamba and Marrupa to Balama. We passed through some of the most beautiful hardwood forests, but the problem was that many of the trees were close to the road, and we had to cut and trim our way though the forest. In some cases we sadly had to cut down whole trees. We were vey lucky to be in a sawmill area.
