Container Bags

old under the Sorbatech® brand, our shipping container desiccant bags, also known as “cargo bags,” are hung in shipping containers, protecting your products from the phenomenon of container rain.

What is container rain?

When container ships travel around the world, they pass through a range of temperatures. When a container ship moves from a hot, humid environment (like Malaysia) to a cold, dry environment (like Canada), moisture releases from the air and condense as water droplets over the course of the journey — just like it condenses on your window pane at home on a cold day.   

Container rain is a top driver of losses in the shipping industry. Approximately 10% of cargo is discarded annually due to moisture damage.  

Flow Dry’s container bags are designed to absorb moisture as it releases into the air – so that your products do not. 

High Humidity

  • loading in humid environments
  • products with high moisture content
  • package and dunnage with high moisture content


Temperature Drop

  • drop when shipped to colder climates
  • drop due to cold front
  • drop with day-to-night temperature fluctuations



  • when temperature drops below dew point
  • when moisture condenses from vapor to liquid
  • when colder air can no longer hold moisture
