Hippo Transport has experienced an amazing growth since 1979 and still remains the core business of The Hippo Group of Companies. The improvements include, a tracking system which has now been installed in our trucks transporting coal in Mpumalanga RSA and for long distances to countries such as Lesotho, Botswana, Zimbabwe and Namibia. These trackers are used to control and monitor the movement of trucks in 24-hrs time of the day. Furthermore, transport services are supported by cell-phones’ contacts which makes it possible to communicate with every driver, everywhere within the vicinity of our distances. The latter technologies are convenient for the effectiveness of our services in case of emergency, directions, time management and safety which is the most preferable principle in hippo business. We have over 15 mechanics who are available 24-hrs a day in shifts to ensure that our trucks are on the move at all the times. They are equipped enough to cater for every need for the spare of trucks and avoid the unnecessary fiascos such as daily breakdowns.
