The risk of damage to cargo through condensation has traditionally been one of the major problems shipping lines have had to face. With the introduction of containers to some routes where the problem occurs, the difficulties, far from diminishing, have in many ways become more complex. Efforts at finding a solution have in general been directed towards two types of systems, the removal of moist air from the container, and the absorption of moisture from the air. It is the purpose-built ventilated container which has risen to prominence as the major vehicle for the application of this new technology. Significant advances have been made and it seems likely that further success will be achieved as demand for this type of unit slowly but steadily continues to increase. The latter trend is evidenced by the plans of container manufacturers, while more and more producers in Western Europe are realising the potential of this market, the same trend is emerging in the Far East.
