The cluster has developed into a trendsetter for future issues related to logistics. Climate change and resource scarcity, urbanisation and demographic change are just some of the challenges the logistics industry must meet through new supply and transportation concepts and intelligently networked systems.

As co-initiator, agiplan has built EffizienzCluster LogistikRuhr and taken on the operational cluster management as a shareholder of EffizienzCluster Management GmbH (ECM).

The ECM drives the sustainable development of the cluster structures, pursues strategic innovation management, and enables the cluster stakeholders to network. It coordinates research projects, initiates new ones and contributes to the exploitation of innovations through knowledge transfer and public relations.
