Conditioning of maritime containers. Options and advice

Here you have some of the advice that Gesica recommends to make the transport of goods in maritime containers more efficient and safe.
Maritime containers are usually made of materials such as corrugated steel, aluminium or plywood. When transporting goods by sea, factors such as cold and humidity must be taken into account, as they are capable of irreparably altering the product they transport. What is the best packaging for sea containers? At C&S Packaging Supplier, a company belonging to the Embalex group as well as Gesica Cargas y Trincajes, you will be able to find the best solutions for conditioning a sea container:

1. ISO THERMAL INSULATORS: these materials are able to protect products and goods from sudden temperature changes without having to use special containers. There are different types of isothermal insulators:
 
Embatuff, for powders, granules, cosmetics, chemical products, pharmaceutical products, bulk products, food, polymers, resins, hot filling products, adhesives, wines and distillates, etc.
 
Embapanel, for pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, wines and liquors, juices, food, chemical industry, etc..
 
Embatherm, for powders, granules, chemical products, pharmaceutical products, food, polymers, resins, adhesives, etc.
 
2. DESICANT SALTS: also called dehydrating salts. This is a perfect material for sea transport, as it absorbs moisture and water condensation. The desiccant salts are able to protect the merchandise against corrosion, mold or damage caused by excess moisture. This material is an almost indispensable requirement for sea transport, as humidity is always present.
 
3. AIRBAGS DE RAFIA: This is a protective bag for fixing goods. The airbags exert pressure on the walls of the transport unit, preventing movement in the cargo. This type of material prevents overturning and, consequently, damage to the goods during transport. They are reusable, adapt to the irregularities of the packaging and can be used for land, sea or rail transport.
 
4. ADAPTED AND ANTISEPTIC RECIPIENT: these containers are safe and allow reuse, as is the case with Flexitank, which is used for containers intended for the transport and storage of bulk and liquids. One of its major advantages is the low labour required for handling, filling and loading, as well as being recyclable and environmentally friendly. There are several types of Flexitank:
 
Goliath, for transporting oils, juices, water, wine, detergents, additives, emulsions, lubricants, inks, etc.
 
Embabaus, for transporting wine, juice, water, oil, detergent, additives, emulsions, lubricants, inks, etc.
 
Embabulk, for the transport of plastic granules, cork waste, dry sludge, cereals, sugar, coffee, cocoa beans, tea, aquaculture feed, etc.
