Center for Logistics, Mobility, and Sustainability

Businesses are exposed to ever faster change in the areas of logistics and mobility. The mission of the Center for Logistics, Mobility, and Sustainability (ZLMN) is to meet change with innovative, sustainable solutions that we develop together with our partners.

The ZLMN combines application-oriented research and teaching in the areas logistics, mobility, and sustainability at the Frankfurt University of Applied Sciences.

The Center for Logistics, Mobility, and Sustainability bundles the competences of three faculties of the Frankfurt University of Applied Sciences and serves as a platform for interdisciplinary, interdepartmental cooperation in the areas logistics, mobility, and sustainability. The ZLMN works together with numerous businesses and makes an important contribution to strengthening the business region Frankfurt-Rhine-Main over the long-term.

In addition to research projects, we offer services such as interdisciplinary consulting, studies, cooperation projects, commissioned research, publications, and workshops.
