Condensation generally builds up due to wet or damp goods being stored inside a container or due to temperature fluctuations outside the container.
To prevent condensation, use one of the following options:
Solution #1 – Absorpoles
One of the easiest, quickest and most affordable anti-condensation solutions is to use Absorpoles. Using the power of calcium chloride, they remove moisture from the air providing a long lasting solution for overseas shipments or long term storage.

Solution #2 – De-Humidifiers
Another short term, cost effective solution to condensation build up is the use of de-humidifiers. They are readily available to purchase from online hardware stores, however because a de-humidifier works by collecting moisture from the air and filling up a bucket of water, you will need to empty the bucket regularly.
Your de-humidifier will also need an external power supply.
Solution #3 – Container Lining
If you want a long term solution to condensation, you may like to consider having your container lined. There are several options for container lining including:
- Grafo Therm Lining
- Standard wood lining
- Lining and insulation
