Praxas has one clear goal, which is to prevent waste due to cargo damage in the logistics chain. And this with the best possible solutions available on the market. By continuously following market developments and test results, even better solutions are sometimes discovered than those already offered. This also applies within the solution area for the protection of air freight. Cargo covers have been part of the Praxas range for quite some time, and with the introduction of the Praxas TLX2 cargo cover, the company is convinced to offer a solution that has the very best properties to prevent cargo damage during air transport.
What are cargo covers used for?
The customer need for the application of cargo covers in general is clear: to protect loss-sensitive and sensitive products that are transported by air freight in such a way that they arrive at the final destination without any form of damage and loss of quality. It is a fact that external factors such as temperature and moisture have an influence. Air freight is often exposed to temperature fluctuations. The warm or cold ambient temperature, when the load is set up on tarmac (asphalt) before it is loaded into the cold hold of the cargo aircraft, almost always has consequences for the humidity. We know that moisture causes damage to many goods. Cargo covers prevent this by keeping the temperature in the cover stable, so that moisture does not have a chance to form. It is crucial that the cargo cover has breathable properties.
Cargo covers are not only used for products that are sensitive to loss. We also see more and more that sensitive products such as bags and clothing, which are transported by air, are protected by cargo covers. After all, the threshold for theft is higher when the cargo is properly packed. In addition, the cargo covers protect against discoloration by the sun.
Why the Praxas TLX2 cargo cover?
Tests with the TLX2 cargo covers have shown that the temperature margin inside the cover is good. This means that the Praxas TLX2 cargo covers offer a stable climate, which reduces the risk of cargo damage even more.
What features does the Praxas TLX2 cargo cover have?
In addition to the important property of protecting against strong temperature fluctuations, the cover is recyclable, breathable and waterproof. The cover has a white exterior, which refects sunlight and forms a barrier against heat and cold from outside. Also, insects and other vermin do not get a chance to penetrate and it reduces the chance of theft or loss. Moreover, its application is very simple.
