Moisture Control

Moisture Control Product Leaflet

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 with 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. 

But 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.

Four steps to eliminate moisture damage

At Cordstrap we are committed to keeping the world’s cargo safe, and that includes eliminating damage caused by moisture during transport.

We deliver container moisture control through a unique four-step approach that ensures our partnership with you delivers the protection you need.

1. Diagnose

Cordstrap’s online Moisture Control Cargo Protection Guide swiftly determines the level of moisture damage cargo could be exposed to. An onsite Cargo Protection Scan using measurement tools and tracking then substantiates this.

Using the scan results, our Moisture Control Dimensioning Tool identifies the optimal solution to maximize protection with minimal disturbance to loading.

3. Product

Our latest technology products come in a variety of sizes and weights to ensure the optimal solution for your moisture risk. The unique product composition guarantees high absorption and the ‘one way only’ outer bag enables fast absorption and no leakage or sweat.
