Global shipping delays are now “extreme”, according to the British International Freight Association (BIFA), with a “staggering” 695 vessels being over a week late during the first quarter of 2021.

For businesses, this represents a significant problem, as unprecedented and unexpected delays don’t just cause problems within the supply chain – they pose danger to the cargo itself.

Humidity is one of the biggest risks to cargo during shipping, with humidity in the air leading to “container rain”, which can cause destroyed packaging and damaged products. Traditional forms of moisture control are not designed for long shipping routes – or delays – leaving cargo vulnerable to container rain.

After high demand for our pioneering hyperdesiccant BirchSorb Cargo, we’ve made it easier and quicker to order for customers all around the world.

BirchSorb Cargo is tailored specifically for long shipping routes, able to absorb three times its own weight in moisture over up to 12 weeks – making it ideal for journeys where there is the risk or possibility of a delay. Able to be used in tandem with other anti-moisture solutions, such as liners, BirchSorb Cargo is able to absorb moisture from a variety of surfaces and materials, including food and grains, fabrics, wood, glass, powders and more.
