53 percent of all online orders are placed with Amazon (own-account and marketplaces)*. A total of one in six parcels in Germany is sent back 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.
