#Shipping Containers • May 10, 2023 • 0 Likes

According to USDA’s National Agricultural Statistics Service (NASS), the U.S. peanut crop in 2022 was estimated at 5.57 billion pounds. Accounting for more than 50 percent of all U.S. peanut production, Georgia produced the most peanuts of any State, with a 2022 peanut crop estimated at 2.9 billion pounds.

The Hyblanket has been protecting peanut shipments around the world with its proven formulation of high absorption materials. When the Hyblanket was introduced to the North American market one of the major industries that benefited was the peanut industry. Theindustry had not been introduced to a solution for condensation management in containers. The Hyblanket along with high performance desiccants like the Hybag Squares protects thousands of peanut shipments from the USA to many global destinations such as China, Malaysia and Europe.

Just like the weather impacts crops and yields, weather impacts exports as well. A container will experience variations of temperature within a container as it makes its journey across the world, and they can be very extreme. Our studies have shown variations from Chicago to Malaysia by as much as 60 degrees along with 100% humidity. This is where the Hyblanket is the solution to combat moisture damage with some of the largest peanut exporters in the world. As you can see in the chart below this container left from Chicago and arrived into Malaysia almost 60 days later only to sit in the port another 14 days. The data displayed below documents both temperature and relative humidity, the variances are as much as 44% difference.

The investment in packaging, storage, handling and transportation cost to ship goods from point A to point B is of great significance in the supply chain process. The investment in ensuring those goods arrive in optimum conditions by using the Hyblanket and Hybags combined have proven themselves to be your solution to protecting the integrity of global peanut shipments.
