LCC Coverage Benefits at a Glance

LCC costs

Downtime, replacement and repairs are difficult to calculate for fleet owners and therefore increase the risk for exploding costs.

ZF Aftermarkets Life Cycle Cost Coverage Program for buses begins when warranty ends. The program offers additional protection beyond the standard warranty period. LCC covers all occurring repair and overhaul costs as well as maintenance costs for ZF units for a period of twelve years (transmissions) or ten years (axles). The direct cost comparison shows, how costs can develop for fleet owners with and without the LCC Coverage Protection. With LCC Coverage, operating costs can be kept modest, downtimes can be minimized and cost calculation becomes more precise.
