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.
Flowers and plants, fruits, vegetables, meat, coffee and more food products… not really easy goods to guide through the logistics chain. These are products that must be transported under strict conditions if consumers want to enjoy them in the end. This has everything to do with the extent to which the chain is optimized and safe, preventing damage during transport. There are several ways to achieve this. Insight into the chain through real-time monitoring of location, temperature and humidity is one such way.
Every day we are confronted with reports about the development of the corona vaccine. Who will develop the most influential vaccine, when is it available and for whom? Where will production take place, and what about worldwide distribution? But vaccine development is not the only challenge. Logistical issues arise; after all, the supply chains for vaccines are very complex. Many aspects must be taken into account, and the question is whether the (logistics) world is ready for this.
A delicious cup of hot coffee to start the day. A daily recurring moment for many. As many as 900 billion cups of coffee are consumed worldwide every year, which equates to 2.5 billion cups per day or 29,000 cups per second. The top 3 coffee drinkers are Finland (1300 cups of coffee per person per year), Sweden (1070 cups per person per year) and the Netherlands (1004 cups per person per year). With the Netherlands as a major consumer of coffee, this is a good reason for Praxas to do some research into this.
Although cargo covers are not unknown in the Praxas range, the most important thing is that products of the best quality are offered. Product lines can be sometimes replaced. This is also the case with the Praxas TLX2 cargo cover. Tests with the TLX2 cargo covers have shown that the temperature margin inside the cover has improved. This means that the Praxas TLX2 cargo covers offer a more stable climate, which reduces the risk of cargo damage even further.
A delicious piece of chocolate cake, chocolate bar, muffin and a box of chocolates, most people cannot get enough of this brown (or white) gold. In Switzerland, most chocolate is consumed per person, but in the Netherlands we also eat an average of 5 kilos of chocolate per year. And did you know that the Netherlands is the number 1 importer of cocoa beans with an import value of 2.1 billion euros and an import quantity of 1.1 billion kilograms? Importing cocoa beans is not always without a struggle. A large part of cocoa imports is still being wasted due to damage that has occurred in the logistics process.
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?
