Core Management
Convenient, Safe and Transparent

Warehouse for used parts

In principle, every form of remanufacturing requires that end-of-life parts or cores are returned efficiently. A sustainable remanufacturing cycle can only be maintained if a functional core management program is in place. Together with other partners, ZF continues to expand its return system for exchange units – always with the goal of making the return process as easy and convenient for the customer as possible.

Central return system in Europe

The end-of-life parts, also called cores, are the "raw material" for this process. The manufacturers receive these parts as they are returned from the market so that they can be remanufactured. It is only possible to sustainably operate a circulation process if a functional core management program is in place.

ZF is continuously expanding its return system for exchange units, also in cooperation with other large automotive suppliers. With CoremanNet ZF is involved in a system within the Automotive Aftermarket that has already been established throughout Europe.

Returning used parts in four easy steps

  • Step 1: Replacement, back-in-box
    Step 1: Replacement, back-in-box

    You will receive the remanufactured part in original ZF packaging. Please make sure you save the packaging, as it is a perfect fit when the used part is sent back. This makes identifying the part easier, saves you from having to dispose of the packaging and protects against transport damages. In addition, it also means your return value is secure.

    Step 3: Identification and assessment

    At sorting stations, trained employees inspect, identify and assess the incoming parts. The cores must meet certain minimum technical requirements so that they can actually be admitted for remanufacturing:

    • They are listed and can be identified in our core management system.
    • They are complete.
    • They are not disassembled.
    • They indicate no mechanical damage on the housing.
    • They show no signs of serious corrosion.
