The digitization of commercial vehicle (CV) fleets and the establishment of new drive and mobility concepts are accelerating at an unprecedented rate. Workshop processes and customer expectations are changing just as quickly. At Automechanika, ZF Aftermarket is presenting a variety of new products and services that allow CV workshops to take advantage of the opportunities associated with these trends.
For example, the new workshop concept for commercial vehicles ZF [pro]Service and ZF [pro]Academy are celebrating their premiere.

Modernly equipped and professionally run CV workshops are essential for the functioning of the economy – because smooth running goods logistics and passenger transport are essential for today’s society.
“We can no longer imagine everyday life without commercial vehicles. Unplanned downtimes must therefore be avoided,” said Aleksander Rabinovitch, Head of the CV Business Line at ZF Aftermarket. “With new service offers, innovative products and a well-founded transfer of know-how, ZF Aftermarket supports its CV customers in keeping up with technical developments on the market, working economically and opening up new business areas.”
As the world’s largest CV supplier, ZF offers pioneering solutions following the integration of WABCO. This means that ZF Aftermarket also has the most comprehensive product portfolio with over 70,000-part numbers for fleets, wholesalers and workshops.
Around 400 new CV parts were introduced to the aftermarket this year. Including repair kits which are particularly appreciated by workshops because they increase the quality of work and success with customers.
“The enclosed repair instructions enable efficient and problem-free repairs and once again stand for our claim of not only supplying our partners with products, but with solutions. This also includes our diagnostic systems, for which we currently have 48,000 licenses,” said Rabinovitch.
ZF Aftermarket is also presenting a new safety concept study, the Turning Assistant System (TAS), at Automechanika Frankfurt. This is a retrofit driver assistance system for monitoring the blind spot in
commercial vehicles, because traffic accidents can best be avoided by seeing better and by being seen.
“Autonomous and automated driving may make the greatest
contribution to road safety in the future. But assistance systems can already help prevent accidents today,” explained Juri Wagenleitner, Head of the Europe Region at ZF Aftermarket, who is pleased that this concept study is one of the finalists in the Automechanika Innovation Award.
