visionThe ZF Magazine

The corporate magazine's latest issue focuses on future mobility.

Higher transport volumes, higher requirements – future mobility solutions have to meet this challenge. More and more people and goods need to be moved faster, more efficiently and more conveniently. There is more than one way to address this challenge, but what is particularly important is a smart transportation mix.

With a wealth of ideas and a broad portfolio of products, ZF drives forward the development of smart mobility. ZF's solutions will not only be installed in autonomous taxis or electric buses, but they will also enable the networking of a variety of transportation modes.

The latest issue of ZF's "vision" magazine provides you with plenty of information on these aspects as well as other exciting topics from the world of ZF.
