A transportable lattice clock based on 87Sr atoms has been built at PTB and successfully tested in the laboratory. The clock showed a stability of 1.3·10−15/√τ and a systematic uncertainty of 7.4· 10−17. Furthermore, its frequency is in agreement with the stationary system of PTB. The system has been placed inside a car trailer and used for two measurement campaigns: A proof of principle experiment of relativistic geodesy in the Frejus tunnel, at the Italy-France boarder, and a local measurement of the 171Yb/87Sr clock frequency ratio at Torino. These campaigns were performed in collaboration with INRIM, NPL and the Institut für Erdmessung (IfE), Leibniz University Hannover. Results will be shown in the talk. This work is supported by QUEST, DFG (RTG 1729, CRC 1128), EU-FP7 (FACT) and EMRP (ITOC). The EMRP is jointly funded by the EMRP participating countries within EURAMET and the European Union.
