Condensation - the build up of moisture within containers and packages of goods being shipped - is a major concern for the international shipper. Changes caused by traversing across latitudes, through dramatic shifts in tempature and humidity levels and under extreme weather conditions can greatly impact goods moving from port to port.

This risk bulletin outlines recommendations for shippers moving cargo - much of it perishable or electronic in nature - through environments where even the slightest moisture buildup can affect the quality of the shipment. By adopting a variety of monitoring devices, and paying close attention to packaging of the goods with condensation in mind, the shipper can best assure that his goods will arrive safely and in good condition at market.
