Route E75 begins in Norway and ends 5,600km (3,500 miles) later on the island of Crete. The road is a crucial link between the northernmost parts of Europe and the Mediterranean. The ZX350LC-6 is working on the A1, an important part of this route.

The ZX350LC-6 was delivered in September 2016, less than a year after the initial work started on the road. The A1 highway is expected to be finished by June 2018.
