Free tyre pressure checks for truckers arriving at Rotterdam Port

Jul 03, 2016

Truckers arriving in the APM Terminal in Rotterdam can now choose to have their tyre pressures checked without having to stop or get out of their vehicles. Truck drivers can choose one of three lanes, one of which is equipped with special sensors set in the road that measure the ‘foot print’ of the tyres and detect any that are below 7.5 bar.  If all are okay a display shows a green smiley, if not a red upside-down smiley appears alerting the driver to a problem. 

The scanner, known as PNEUSCAN from VENTECH Systems, was introduced to improve safety on the roads generally and in particular around the port where on average two trucks a day are delayed by flat tyres.

Andreas Pietsch, technical head of VENTECH Systems said, "We are happy that such an important platform as the Rotterdam harbour uses our tyre inspection system. We especially support the customer APM Terminal, because the system works on a voluntary basis and contributes to the motivation of the professional drivers."
