In 2009, WABCO initiated two strategic Customer Value Teams (CVTs) to align with technology trends that are relevant to our customers.
One CVT drives vehicle efficiency and environmental sustainability, while our other CVT drives advanced safety and driver effectiveness. Each team develops concepts for new products and systems to maximize value for customers by leveraging all of WABCO’s technologies and capabilities.
Vehicle Efficiency and Environmental Sustainability
WABCO’s vision toward 2020 is to support the commercial vehicle industry to achieve its target of improving fuel efficiency by 20 percent and reducing carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions by 20 percent.
Our CVT is further powered by WABCO’s global engineering network. By devising innovation strategy from deeper understanding of diverse customer roadmaps, we can develop and deliver technologies that increase fuel efficiency, reduce vehicle weight, optimize energy recovery, and achieve other efficiency and environmental enhancements for commercial vehicles on a continual basis.
Advanced Safety and Driver Effectiveness
WABCO has a vision to improve vehicle safety while strongly contributing to driver effectiveness. Our strategy involves reducing the number of commercial vehicle accidents by 50 percent by 2020.
WABCO’s industry-leading portfolio of vehicle safety technology addresses nearly every type of road accident. Our CVT, which also includes engineering and manufacturing experts, anticipates customer needs. Connected with customers and aligned with their technology roadmaps, our CVT develops new products and functionalities to better meet the future needs of original equipment manufacturers everywhere.
The Power of Technology
Our CVTs are committed to contributing to the long term success of our customers. We further leverage WABCO’s powerful technology portfolio and experience in established markets. We also help satisfy the rapidly rising demand for advanced solutions in emerging markets where commercial vehicle producers are accelerating their adoption of higher safety and environmental standards.
