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.

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?

Paper cannot be ignored from our daily lives. We use it in countless ways — newspapers, books, coffee filters, baking paper, puzzles, gift paper, toilet paper, memos, money, packaging of (online) purchases. Paper and cardboard prove their value every day, and we often use the products without thinking about it.
