I’ve always wondered how hot it gets inside a Shipping Container, whether its for storage or overseas shipment putting goods in a massive metal can exposes your product to some fairly rough conditions, and i’m not just talking about movement.
I stumbled across this clip on YouTube by “http://www.out-backstorage.com/“. They set up a thermometer inside and outside of a shipping container to measure how hot it gets…
I’ve spoken to one of the guys in our packing crew who told me that many years ago they did a packing job in far western Sydney in the summer time. It was actually 47degrees celcius in the sun and rose to 52 inside the container, so whilst the above clip probably isnt a true representation of Sydney temperatures, its interesting that the temperature was 5 degrees hotter on the inside as per the above…..
If you’re sending anything inside a shipping container, you need to make sure you consider how hot it gets and what affect it will have on your cargo.
There are some cheap and easy solutions such as Desiccants and premium products like VCI’s and Barrier Foil that can be used to avoid the risks caused by the sweating that will occur inside the container.

Oh and if you have any data on the temperatures inside a Shipping Containers in Australia, feel free to share your links, I’m sure I’m not the only one who finds this interesting…. or maybe I am….
