All under supervision

DEKRA guarantees proper measurement

DEKRA is the guarantor of proper measurement in the Record Run. The man entrusted with this task is Jens Lohmann, Head of the Specialist Division Testing at DEKRA Automobil GmbH in Hanover. The three comparative-drive vehicles will always be refuelled under the supervision of the graduate engineer (UAS) – before the start in Rotterdam and then during respective stops at the service camp in Peine. After refuelling, Lohmann will seal the tanks for diesel and AdBlue. This also applies to the entire fuel supply, the cab locking, the fifth wheel coupling, the stowage boxes and the cargo compartment doors of the semitrailers, and the spare wheel attachments. You can find out more about the extensive measurement and documentation methods in the interview with Jens Lohmann.
