Moisture Control in Shipping Containers

Avoid corrosion, mold, caking of powders and deteriorated packaging

Products and their packaging are exposed to moisture during shipping. Insurers estimate that close to 10% of container shipment losses are caused by moisture damage. This is an estimated annual $400 – $500 billion loss in sales value!

Corrosion, mold, caking of powders and the deterioration of packaging are among the consequences of moisture control neglect or ignorance. However, moisture damage is not limited to sales value loss: it negatively impacts the environment, by generating waste, causing inefficiency in the supply chain and negatively affecting brand values.
