To ensure cargo arrives in pristine condition, most exporters achieve appropriate protection by using container desiccant.

Packing cargo here in Australia on a typical winter day of 18 deg Celsius you may not think of moisture being a problem in your shipment.

However, when your container gets to the equator or is trans shipped via Singapore, the internal temperature in your container is likely to reach 50 degrees.

This high temperature and humidity creates "cargo sweat" that in turn becomes container rain.

This creates mildew, rust and sodden cartons. As a result your cargo may arrive in ordinary condition and often not suitable for sale.

To completely protect your container shipment simply add MBD99 desiccant.

The typical cost for a container is around $100, excellent cost-effective insurance!

MBD99 clay based desiccant has been manufactured by AWS for over 25 years and is used by numerous exporters to completely protect their loads.

MBD99 is made in a variety of sizes that also protect smaller size shipments (boxes or individual pallets).
