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.

Transport by container is an economical and safe choice to transport goods. There are always 5 to 6 million containers at sea, anywhere in the world, at any time. Your goods are transported in these containers. And almost every product, from steel to paper, from wood to textile, is sensitive to moisture. Due to moisture, depletion can occur and that is why it is important to reduce the amount of moisture as much as possible. But how does moisture actually develop and what are the consequences?

Chain-wide logistical approach is the solution for loss of goods

02-10-2018

Damage during transport and storage, caused by moisture, breakage, mold, ethylene, temperature fluctuations, theft or loss, is not an unknown problem within the Transport & Logistics sector. In the distribution chain, goods are constantly exposed to various risks, which they are not always able to withstand. It therefore remains a major challenge to organize transports in such a way that products ultimately end up harmless to the end user. Now it is debatable whether this is only a matter of liability and legal guidelines and how the carrier or the sender is insured against damage or loss of goods during transport. Bob van Velden, founder and director of Praxas, does not think so.
