What is Zero4?

Zero4 is a research and innovation collaboration and ecosystem led by Konecranes. Zero4’s vision is a unified material flow platform developed together with ecosystem partners, universities, research institutes and customers. The program focuses on constructing a holistic material flow platform that tracks material movement and seamlessly and efficiently orchestrates, visualizes and optimizes intralogistics equipment fleets and material so that the needed materials are always where they should be.

Our mission
Making material flow better, safer and more sustainable

Our mission

We are on a mission to create a common material flow platform that optimizes material and information flows. We aim to decarbonize material flow equipment and activities, and design equipment and operations to consume less energy and regenerate what is spent. Moreover, we make material flows and related activities safer for humans, and remove disruptions from operations.
