Norwegian transports electric vehicles for Hollywood blockbuster


Norwegian Cargo has transported 10 electric Buddy cars and six Buddy bikes to be used in the upcoming Hollywood blockbuster, Downsizing, starring Matt Damon.

The cars and bikes were shipped from Oslo to New York using the bellyhold of a Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner before being trucked to Toronto for filming. The electric vehicles will be used in the Paramount Pictures movie, Downsizing, starring Matt Damon and directed by Alexander Payne. It is due to be released in late 2017.

Norwegian head of cargo, Bjorn Erik Barman-Jenssen says: “To be entrusted with valuable shipments that will take a central role in a Hollywood movie is testament to the service Norwegian offers.”

“As we continue expanding our network and widebody capacity with four new 787-9 Dreamliners coming into our fleet this year, forwarders and shippers can depend on Norwegian to deliver freight efficiently with care in mind.”
