With its logistics network and an innovative return software solution,
CoremanNet offers an attractive service for the circular economy for

cores, from the market, identify them and provide them to the
remanufacturing plants.

 

By now, CoremanNet already runs the world’s largest service network for
the return of automotive spare parts for their remanufacturing.
Throughout the upcoming years, solutions for additional sectors are to
further the growth even more.

 

Berlin – CoremanNet was awarded the Federal Ecodesign Award by the German Federal Environment Ministry and the German Federal Environment Office. According to the jury, the service for circular economy was awarded the renowned distinction in the “service” category for being a service provider “completing material cycles, significantly saving resources and being applicable to other sectors.” The award was issued in the course of a gala at the Federal Environment Ministry on November 23, 2015. By now, CoremanNet already runs the world’s largest service network for the return of automotive spare parts for their remanufacturing. Throughout the upcoming years, solutions for additional sectors are to further the growth even more.

CoremanNet Allows Systematic Circular Economy
With its international logistics network and its innovative IT solution, CoremanNet allows a systematic circular economy for used parts. CoremanNet retrieves the so-called cores from the market, identifies them and checks them based on technical criteria. Afterwards, they are sorted and provided to the remanufacturers with the required quality and on time for the remanufacturing. CoremanNet systematically records the transferable rights to return cores. A balance of rights to return and returned parts is available to all participating trade levels and at any time.

Saving Resources by Means of Effective Core Management
With a return rate of approximately 90 percent and the largest collection volume on the automotive aftermarket, CoremanNet achieves top results and thus allows industrial remanufacturing of cores. In comparison to the production of new parts, this allows savings of raw materials of approximately 85 percent and energy savings of some 55 percent. On an annual basis, this allows saving 400,000 metric tons of CO2 on the automotive sector in the EU.

Sector-Independent Core Management
At first, Bosch developed the CoremanNet collection service for its own exchange-parts range Bosch eXchange. Since then, CoremanNet has become established as an independent brand with a network consisting of 17 locations across Europe for the collection and processing of cores and being represented in the NAFTA region and in China, as well. CoremanNet offers its services to all market players – also to those ones not related to the automotive industry. All information concerning the core-collection service can be consulted online at www.coremannet.com.
