ZFs BusConnect and aftermarket news hits the Expo

ZF says it has new products ready to show at the Expo

ZF is well-known for its OE bus products and aftermarket offerings. At this year’s Australasian Bus & Coach Expo, the Oceania team will turn its focus to ZF’s latest telematics solutions for bus and coaches, Bus Connect.

“Our main objective at this year’s Expo is to build awareness of our vast products and services that we can provide to the market locally,” ZF Oceania Managing Director Mark Lowe told ABC. “Specifically, we really want to highlight and build awareness of our new telematics program for fleet operators in Bus Connect.

“The Australian market could be considered quite saturated in terms of telematics providers, but we believe Bus Connect offers a point of difference.”

To highlight the features of the Bus Connect fleet management tool, ZF is planning live demonstrations of the telematics solutions for prospective customers at stand number 117A.

ZF will also be showcasing its e-mobility solutions, including the CeTrax electric central drive that can be used in various bus and heavy vehicle applications and the AxTrax AVE portal axle.

The Expo will also be a great opportunity for ZF to spread awareness about its recent acquisition of Wabco Vehicle Control Systems.

“We want to show the linkage between ZF and Wabco,” Lowe says. “With this acquisition, ZF is now a one-stop shop for bus and heavy vehicle applications with advanced solutions for safe, sustainable and digitised transport.”

ZF will also be exhibiting an array of its aftermarket offerings for bus and coach applications from its Lemforder, SACHS and TRW brands with dedicated displays on steering and suspension components, shock absorbers and clutches, and braking systems.

“It’ll just be so good to get out there and see customers, to really showcase where ZF is heading,” Lowe says. “It’s been a long time coming; we’ll use it to discuss our latest generation of e-mobility and how we can provide the products and services that customers and the market requires.
