About Ducktrain

Imagine that Future Mobility would not only mean the electrification of vehicles, but that something with impact and change will happen on our roads and in our cities. Imagine inner cities where the streets are not blocked by parked delivery vehicles, so that the streets can be used for what they were built for: driving. We at Ducktrain believe it is worth thinking about such a future! With Ducktrain, we have developed an all-electric, automated logistics technology, that will be the enabler to bring multiple logistic use-cases to a new level of efficiency. Like: City logistics targeting the 100ds million of parcels delivered worldwide each day or intra-extra logistics on factory grounds. After successfully finishing internal feasibility prototype tests in 2018 we are currently working on our first road certified Ducktrain, which will be tested in 2019/2020 with several partners from the logistic industry on public road in Europe.
