During transportation or warehousing, moisture can be absorbed by your products and its packaging resulting in damage such as deformation, mold/mildew, odor, crushed and collapsed packaging, etc. There are preventive measures that can be taken to help reduce or eliminate the moisture problem.

CONTAINER RAIN

Containers provide an ideal micro-climate to increase moisture damage risks. When a container is exposed to temperatures below the dew point, the moisture from the ambient air will condensate. This is most visible at the ceiling and walls of the container and it can drip on to the cargo. This process is commonly known as container rain.

Condensation can also appear inside the packaging of the merchandise. This can be a repetitive process during transport and can increase the risk of moisture damage, like mold growth, corrosion, deformation, malfunction and odor.
