A Saurer 4.5 ton truck, built by Adolphe Saurer in Arbon Switzerland, arrived in San Francisco, California, after completing a demonstration drive from Denver, Colorado. This truck was later shipped to Pueblo, Colorado and driven to New York City in what the company claimed to be the first trans-United States trip by a motor truck.
