"How Hupac has been taking lorries off the roads for 50 years"

The freelance journalist Christian Hug absorbingly and knowledgably tells Hupac’s exciting history in an easily accessible manner. The account ranges from the company’s founding in 1967, which triggered a scandal both in the world of railway and road transport, to the future in maritime traffic and progressive digitalisation.


The book is interspersed with impressive photo essays portraying everyday work on the rails and with the lorries, supplemented by a technical section containing details for specialists.


Moving Forwards is much more than simply a company history for branch insiders. It is simultaneously a carefully appraised chronology of Swiss and European transport policies, and last but not least also a reflection of the social transformations of the last decades. In short a fascinating book for anyone interested in railways, logistics and the politics of transport.
