    Goals / remit

ECG is the association of the finished vehicle logistics sector in Europe. It represents over 80% of the European automotive outbound logistics industry, distributing vehicles by road, rail, sea and inland waterways. Member-companies are responsible for the movement and post-production modification of such vehicles after they leave the factory and before they arrive at the franchised dealership.

Today ECG members come from 27 countries accross Europe - including Georgia, the Russian Federation, Ukraine, Western Balkans and Turkey - and have an aggregate direct turnover of around €22bn, employing more than 70,000 people. They own or operate over 400 car carrying ships, some 18,100 purpose-build railway wagons, 85 river barges and 18,500 specialist road transporters.

ECG’s objective is to promote the interests of the finished vehicle logistics sector by highlighting its role as a vital and essential link in the automotive supply chain.
Its task is to monitor current and future EU policies, internally discuss with members important developments affecting the sector and to lobby European institutions so that its needs are recognized and taken into account in the EU policy making process.

ECG also provides information, training and networking events to its members and liaises, on behalf of its membership, with vehicle manufacturers (OEMs), their trade associations and other EU and international organisations.
