Our “Thermal Cargo Blankets Containers” will seal, insulate and protect against temperature changes, humidity, packaging and water spills. Our clients can be assured protection of their cargo with our “thermal cargo blankets containers” which are designed to protect your cargo from the risks associated with unpredictable climate conditions during transits, inland, at relay ports or on the quay for both, short or long voyages.

We use the Envirotuff Liner (ETL) which is a patented thermal liner designed to protect wine and other goods during transport. This is achieved by creating an environment that significantly reduces the rate at which temperature fluctuates thus not allowing the dew point to be reached.

Companies exporting wine must obtain an export licence from The Wine and Brandy Corporation. Our consultant will assist a client to obtain licences, as they can be limited. These licences are also reviewed yearly and the company’s performance is taken into consideration.
