ELVIS put simply

ELVIS involves the cooperation of small and medium-sized freight carriers and shippers who have recognised that they are stronger in an association. The purchasing benefits alone enable ELVIS members to secure cost savings which significantly exceed the moderate membership fee. Wide-ranging operational benefits are possible for every member, but entail active collaboration in the ELVIS association.

ELVIS is strong, personal and provides links


ELVIS is a strong purchasing association. ELVIS bundles its members’ needs together and thus generates market power, providing quantifiable benefits for members. ELVIS covers all the purchasing areas of a transport company: vehicles, diesel, fuels and tolls, but also insurances and external services.

The strength of ELVIS is not just reflected in its purchasing power, but above all in the competence of the ELVIS people. The team provides advisory support for members on all issues and develops innovative ideas and concepts based on this competence, which provide benefits for members.


People are always the focus at ELVIS. The personal and direct exchange with members is important to ELVIS. This involves not making any distinction between a managing director or an employee of a member company. Everybody finds their competent, direct and personal contact at ELVIS.

ELVIS of course uses modern, automated systems for communication within the association. Nevertheless, people are still just a phone call away.

Providing links

ELVIS links its members together. The types of links vary and reflect the interests and wishes of the ELVIS members. This may be a simple, informal exchange between members, systematic benchmarking or a fully-integrated operational system, such as the Part Load Netzwerk. In some cases, networks are at an intermediate stage, where members have not yet achieved a higher level of integration. In these areas, it is up to members how strong the development of the collaboration will be. ELVIS offers links and networking opportunities which members breathe life into, in line with their own personal wishes and expectations.

ELVIS links its members with outside experts. Whether it is a technology expert or law, ELVIS has a sophisticated network of external contacts who offer ELVIS members optimum support. Naturally, ELVIS also passes on its purchasing power to its members in this area and negotiates preferential conditions.

ELVIS provides its members with links to relevant information in terms of politics and jurisprudence. In a market like logistics which is so strictly regulated, fast and reliable information about the current status of political and legal guidelines gives significant competitive advantages.


Each individual cooperation partner is the focus of what we do.

Our actions enable us to constantly create new added values for our cooperation partners and so at the same time to make a substantial contribution to safeguarding the future of our members.

Our position is always neutral and we act exclusively in the interests of the association. In doing so, we always abide by the law and regulations.

Everything we do is always altruistic with a strong, cooperative character. We always endeavour to find the best solution.

Our services meet the highest quality and safety requirements.

We are an integral and important component of the corporate structure for our members.

The motivation and knowledge of all our employees and our partners’ employees are the key to our success.

The environmentally friendly use of resources is particularly important to us!



The European truck transport market will be subject to further radical changes over the coming years. Transport volumes, especially in the part and full load market, and their volatility will grow, the lack of transport infrastructure and constant new state requirements will impose further restrictions on trucks, costs will rise and revenues will fall.

Against the background of these challenges, we have made it our mission to strengthen our network by adding further small and medium-sized European transport companies and to increase the size of the truck fleet to more than 25,000 vehicles with well over 250 members.

This new dimension of a truck network, combined with the courage to innovate, will enable us over the next 5 to 10 years to further progress the industrialisation process we have begun and, thanks to central scheduling systems and previously unimaginable forms of traffic management, to achieve synergies which will safeguard the commercial success of our small and medium-sized cooperation partners, as well as entirely fulfilling the increasing requirements and expectations of loaders.

At the same time, we are constantly developing new concepts and ideas to reduce costs in all areas. Here too, our aim is ever greater bundling of purchasing volumes and centralisation and outsourcing of operational processes and functions.

We firmly believe that small German freight carriers will only have the chance to survive in this radically changing market environment if they have lean and flexible structures, which provide necessary operational and commercial transparency, and if they free themselves of all unnecessary administrative burdens. We are working to make our members fit for the future and to enable them to see the constant market changes as an opportunity.

Simply ELVIS, simply young!

The ELVIS junior group has been around since 2016. This is where young executives from ELVIS member companies get together, along with those on their way up the ladder. Together, they grapple with the challenges of working life, the leadership role and the often special demands of small and medium-sized family businesses.

The aim of the junior group is learning together and from one another and getting to know like-minded people in a similar situation.

Career entry and internships

For young graduates from economics degree courses – particularly with a focus on the logistics and transportation area – and those starting out on their careers, we offer interesting career entry opportunities with “on-the-job training” followed by taking charge of (part) projects. The area of responsibility includes the organisational and administrative support of project implementation, along with the conceptual and structural preparation of task assignments and setting of objectives within complex project requirements. They support the project team in their day-to-day work, with the preparation and processing of data material and with the development of process descriptions.
