Praxas Container Pack: cost item or value issue?

Praxas Container Pack: cost item or value issue?

20-08-2019

Internal discussions about under which budget the application of a container pack falls naturally occur regularly. Do they fall under the transport costs? Alternatively, the packaging costs? Does the container pack have to be added to the value of the load? Also, how does the value of the solution (preventing loss) relate to the investment? These issues are very logical because the costs for such a solution must be included under a specific budget.

Reefer containers are used for the worldwide export of perishables and temperature-sensitive goods such as vegetables, fruit, dairy products and meat, but also chemical and pharmaceutical products. It is connected to the ship’s electrical supply and cooled, in which the temperature is adjusted to the load. The temperature is monitored using sensors. Transporting with an operating reefer container is naturally more expensive than with a regular container.

It has already mentioned so many times, but still a very shocking figure: 500 billion dollars worth of goods is lost annually due te damage caused during container transport. Ten percent of it is due to moisture. In this time, in which the environment, waste and sustainability play an increasingly important role, this seems unthinkable. But that's not it. Complete loads are still thrown away because the damage has been caused by, for example, mould, caking, wet packaging, loosely soaked labels... Do you recognise it?

The freight container - one of the biggest revolutions in modern times

07-05-2019

You don’t immediately think about it, but together with the internet, the freight container is one of the biggest revolutions in modern times. The container was invented as a transport unit in the 1930s, but it was only in 1955 that it was put into use on a container ship. In 1966 the first container was unloaded in the Port of Rotterdam. Where it took months before shipping the cargo from one coast to another, and the chance of damage was still quite high, it now appeared possible to transfer the same load from coast to coast in a week, with the risk of damage being decreased. This made international trade possible on a large scale. The container is the basis for a new supply chain and enormous globalisation that has taken place. It has reduced waste, won wars and helped people in need.

Milk powder, make-up, cocoa, raw materials, medicines and paint... Just a small list of products that are produced and transported as dry powder via worldwide export. That dry powders are sensitive to moisture is a known problem. This is because powders tend to absorb moisture, causing caking. This influences the quality of the product and it is also a breeding ground for bacteria and insects.

Dew point reached? Great risk of moisture damage to goods in containers

Every container contains moisture, even though this is not always visible. Even before the goods are loaded into the container, a measurement with 100% certainty will show that there is moisture (water vapour) in the air. Humidity is in the container floor that has been cleaned, in the pallets that have been outside for some time, and in the packaging material in which the goods are packaged. At first glance, therefore, there may be a perception that the container is dry, while the amount of invisible moisture in the air can be considerable.
