Pioneering spirit, passion and electric mobility are what drive Futuricum, DPD Switzerland and Continental to accelerate the future of the sustainable logistics industry.

The ROAD TO RECORD is 1.099 km long!

We have set a milestone in the sustainable logistics industry. Futuricum, DPD Switzerland and Continental were able to have an official Guinness World Record certified:

Greatest distance by an electric rigid truck, single charge

The team

Housi - the truck driver

He is a veteran trucker of the old school. He has been on Europe's roads for more than 60 years. Only a man with this experience was considered by the project team as a record-breaking driver. The switch to an electric truck was more than critical for the diesel enthusiast. For him, trucks and diesel belonged together like salt and chips. But in the end, it didn't take long to get used to the idea and Housi saw, noticed and felt the advantages of e-mobility with the Futuricum e-truck. Today, he prefers to sniff flowers rather than diesel.

Sabrina - Boss

Sabrina's motto in life is: Leave the conservative highways and explore new paths. One new path she is determined to follow with her company is the Road to Record. As early as June 2020, Sabrina deployed the first Futuricum e-truck at DPD. It is clear to her that something has to move in the logistics industry and therefore supports this project wholeheartedly to set an example for e-mobility.

Stefan - Tire Mechanic

When you ask Stefan how things are going for him, he just says: It's rolling! The technical consultant at Continental is obsessed with all tires. But what fascinates him most is the trend toward energy-efficient tires. "With the right setup, you can save an incredible amount of energy here," says Stefan. With this insight, he was the right man for our project and a real asset when it came to choosing the optimal tires.

The test track

On the track of the range record - with our partner Continental, the Contidrom north of Hanover, Germany, offered the ideal conditions to achieve this goal. The electric range revolution was to take place there, where Continental has been running various test and measurements since 1967. In the impressive high-speed oval with its length of 2.8 km, the Futuricum e-truck ultimately completed a distance of 1,099 km.
