Stacks of parcels in a storage container

Protect e-commerce returns from moisture in the interim storage facility

54 percent of all online orders are placed with Amazon (own-account and marketplaces)*. Depending on the product category and payment method, in some cases every second parcel in Germany is returned to the respective e-commerce retailer**. A large business segment. Especially for Marketplace retailers who lack the necessary capacities for their own returns management, it is a common model to hand over the returns to resellers. Before they can sell the goods themselves, they have to be stored temporarily - e.g. in a freight container. To protect the goods from damage due to high humidity, a ThoMar customer uses SeaDry container desiccants. The success of this measure is confirmed by a data logger that continuously records the climate in the container. If the desiccants are replaced in good time after saturation, the humidity remains within a non-critical range.

Do you also use containers for storage, temporarily or permanently? Get in touch with us. Our advisors will recommend the right SeaDry variant for you and have further advice for optimally securing your goods.

IBC containers and steel drums in an outdoor storage facility

Silica gel protects raw materials in drums and IBCs

In order to protect hygroscopic substances from too much harmful humidity during storage in or removal from IBCs (Intermediate Bulk Containers), drums or tanks, special desiccant filters are attached to the vent nozzle of the container. Loose silica gel is contained in the filters. Due to its ability to adsorb excess moisture from the ambient air, on the one hand the inner air column above the stored substance is dehumidified. On the other hand, the silica gel dries the outside air that flows in when the container is emptied.

For this and other purposes, ThoMar OHG supplies you with silica gel in bulk, also as silica gel orange (with saturation indicator). In addition to our standard range, various grain sizes are available upon request.

Securing beer transports in containers against moisture

1st place Belgium, 2nd place Germany, 3rd place Netherlands. This is not a prediction of the outcome of the European Football Championship, but a ranking of the countries with the largest beer export volumes in the 2022 observation period (according to online statistics platform Statista). Read here how a brewery with worldwide shipping protects its sales packagings from moisture damage during the weeks-long transport by container overseas.

25 years of ThoMar OHG

The first of May was more than just an ordinary public holiday this year: ThoMar OHG celebrated its 25th company anniversary on 1 May 2024! So for us as founders, this is a time of joy, looking back and giving thanks.

Over the past 25 years, we have experienced a remarkable journey. Starting out as a small business in what used to be a child's bedroom and a corner of a barn, ThoMar has continued to evolve. Today, we are proud to be a leading supplier of a wide range of innovative products, including high-quality car dehumidifiers, desiccant bags for pharmaceuticals, industry and logistics, and liquid absorbers.

However, our success would not have been possible without the support of our loyal customers, partners and our fantastic employees. We would therefore like to express our sincere thanks to all of you. Your support and trust mean a lot to us and are the driving force behind our pursuit of excellence.

As we look back on our past, we also look forward to the future with great anticipation. We are determined to continue offering innovative solutions, continuously improving our service and making a positive contribution to our society.

A quarter of a century is a significant chapter in the history of a company, but for us it only marks the beginning of a new and exciting chapter. We invite you to join us on this journey and become part of our continued success story.

Thank you once again to everyone who has supported us over the last 25 years. Here's to the next 25 years of growth, success and shared achievements!

Thomas and Martin Möller
