ZF acquires Dutch e-mobility company 2getthere

German parts maker ZF has acquired a 60% share of Dutch e-mobility company 2getthere. 2getthere produces automated transport systems, including driverless electric transport systems for airports, businesses and theme parks and urban transport infrastructure.

The acquisition is part of ZF’s Next Generation Mobility strategy, through which it hopes to gain a foothold in the Mobility as a Service and automated guided vehicle markets. The acquisition joins ZF’s previous investments in mobility services and automation, which include Transdev, a provider of integrated mobility solutions, and a joint venture with e.GO Mobile to produce an autonomous minibus.

Since its founding in 1984, 2getthere has accumulated more than 100 million kilometers of autonomous mileage with electric driverless passenger and cargo transport systems in cities, ports, and airports.

ZF Chairman Wolf-Henning Scheider said, “We have developed into a complete systems supplier for automated functions and we are therefore in a perfect position to support 2getthere. We can deliver electric drivelines, solutions for sensor technology, high-performance computing, and actuators for all levels of automated applications.”
