A beautiful, unspoilt mountain landscape with a vibrant economy and plenty of tourists. And right in the middle of it all is Benny the carriage horse. He’s got Polish roots, but he now powers Alpin Cargo’s package delivery service and old-school taxi in beautiful Valais. And that’s not all: Benny also embodies creativity, humour and dedication to high-quality logistics in the heart of the Swiss Alps.
Name: Benny. Job: carriage horse. The new shining star of Zermatt takes to the streets with around 800 kg and a single HP – and since the start of August 2020, he’s been carrying two-legged guests too.

Anyone who wants to get things moving needs a licence. Benny is officially on the streets as a taxi driver. Despite the driving ban in Zermatt. And despite coronavirus.

Hard workers deserve a wellness day now and again. Benny enjoys a shower on his day off – with a beautiful view of the Matterhorn.
