Statement by President Robert Kastner

Dear Members, Friends and Partners of the UICR,               It is our painful duty to announce the death of our dear friend and honorary President Ludwig Büchel, of Liechtenstein. He passed away on July 4th, 2017, at the age of 70, due to a long illness.
Ludwig first led a regional drivers organization then later moved to the head of the Swiss professional driver’s organization. In 1999 Ludwig took over the presidency of the Union Internationale des Chauffeurs Routiers UICR which he held until 2015. Under his leadership, the UICR was built up into what it is today and transformed into an organization representing driver interests internationally. I as Ludwig Büchels successor will continue working in this direction. We will miss his friendly manner, his diplomacy and his vast knowledge in the transport industry. The moments that we spent together with Ludwig Büchel will be cherished. We wish his wife, his family and their friends bon courage in this difficult experience. In the name of the UICR,

Robert Kastner
