Cargo damage?
Always a solution for every risk


Billions of goods are lost each year due to cargo damage during storage and transportation. Moisture, mold, breakage, theft, heat, cold. Risks to which goods are exposed during transportation. By sea, air, or rail or road. All over the world. Cargo damage is nobody's cup of tea. Not you as transport manager, but not the customer either. Fortunately, cargo damage can be prevented quite easily. Praxas offers the most appropriate solution for your problem. A solution for every risk.



Mainly goods that are sensitive to loss and need to be delivered quickly, such as flowers, fish, fruit and vegetables, are transported by air freight. Valuable goods are also often transported by air. These goods are exposed to temperature fluctuations due to the different climate zones, the temperature of the tarmac at the airport and the conditions in the cargo hold. This causes damages that have a negative impact on the supply chain.



Billions of Euros of goods are lost annually due to cargo damage during sea transport. A large part of this damage is caused by moisture. Moisture in a shipping container is caused by climate zones, weather conditions, moisture in the container floor and the goods themselves. Damages include corrosion, damp packaging, clumping of powdered products and mold growth. Creating a stable climate in the shipping container is important to counteract these damages.



Both nationwide and worldwide, trucks are used to transport goods from A to B. For example, these are trucks that supply Dutch companies from the port of Rotterdam or Schiphol Airport, but also the trucks that export Dutch goods to the rest of Europe. Cargo damage can also occur during road transport. For example, due to temperature or humidity. And what about theft or loss. By protecting the cargo with the most appropriate solution you create an efficient supply chain.


Rail transport is an efficient multimodal link that enables transport between the Netherlands and many European destinations. It is a sustainable alternative to road transport which is becoming increasingly expensive. Moreover, it is a fast and cost-effective modality. Faster than sea freight and cheaper than air freight. Provided the goods arrive at the end customer without damage.




If you export steel or products made from steel or aluminium, you must consider the risks associated with maritime transport. After all, steel is a product that is very susceptible to damage. Imagine that your customer receives your goods and discovers rust damage for a moment. Of course, you want to avoid that at all costs. Your reputation and your relationship with the customer are at stake.

Sustainability is being dealt with more and more consciously in logistics supply chains. This also applies to transports that are equipped with desiccants. By applying desiccants during transport, cargo damage and therefore waste is reduced. Waste of goods, but think also of the waste as a result of moisture damage.
