Kiosk of the Future: bboxx SYSTEM

Berlin/ Dresden, July 2015

On behalf of Lekkerland, one of the leading wholesalers in Europe, Veloform Media has developed the Kiosk of the Future "Lecker 2020", using the bboxx SYSTEM technology. For the first time, the bboxx SYSTEM is fitted with standardized furniture, completely composed of various modules.

The first edition, operated by Sächsische Dampfschiffahrt, has been set up in Dresden on the shore of the Elbe river.

Rikscha Taxi Schweiz and Veloform Media GmbH Berlin are strengthening their partnership

Bern/ Berlin, January 2015

The opening of Rikscha Taxi Schweiz in 2009 increased the presence of Veloform Media's CityCruiser 2 in Switzerland considerably. Ever since, the two partners have worked together to establish the Berlin based, green transportation concept in a number of Swiss cities. Rikscha Taxi Schweiz was able to implement the concept locally with great success, and managed to get clearance for the new vehicles in the Swiss road traffic act in 2011, with the support of member of the Swiss Federal Council Doris Leuthard.

As of January 2015, Veloform Media has divested to Rikschataxi Schweiz all the rights of the CityCruiser 2 model. The Swiss partner will manufacture and further develop the vehicle under the label „Swiss made“ especially for the Swiss market. Yesterday in Bern, Veloform Media GmbH has handed over the patent, production tools and the complete design to Rikscha Taxi Schweiz.

The partners will continue their efficient cooperation for both the Swiss and the international market, particularly regarding the technical advancement of the vehicle.

Pascal Nydegger, CEO of Rikscha Taxi Schweiz, comments on the opening of the 2015 season with this major step as follows: „Taking over the CityCruiser 2 platform represents another milestone in Rikscha Taxi Schweiz's success story. We are the only certified rickshaw-operator in Switzerland, and we are already operating pedicabs in several important locations. The number of cities will be growing over the coming years. Veloform Media's unrivalled know-how has always been extremely helpful, and this new step in our partnership underlines our exclusive position.“

Anselm Franz, CEO of Veloform Media GmbH, after 15 years of leadership on the Velotaxi market, acknowlodges his partner's achievements: „When we started developing the CityCruiser 2 in 2004, the requirements of the Swiss market where our main focus. Thanks to the perseverance and creativity of Rikscha Taxi Schweiz, today we are looking at a certified quality product. Our strengthened cooperation with Rikschataxi will boost the whole market.“
