Dunnage bags, sometimes called dunnage airbags, simply dunnage airbags and container dunnage (we have even heard them be called 'Container Pillows' or 'Big Jiffy Bags’), are bags made of strong materials that slip between products in a ship’s hold to secure them in transit. These dunnage bags are filled with air from a compressor and set in place between products and pallets to fill the void between them. Filling this void with dunnage air bags or paper dunnage bags stops the product moving and potentially getting damaged in transit. You’ll find standard dunnage airbags, fast flow dunnage airbags, woven dunnage airbags, and dunnage bag accessories here at Exporta Global to suit your load securing needs.
Dunnage bags are used to secure and stabilise cargo. Introduced around 1970, dunnage bags provide convenient and cost-effective cargo stabilisation in ISO sea containers, closed railcars, trucks, and oceangoing vessels.
These container dunnage bags are filled with air from a compressor and set in place between products and pallets to fill the void between them. Filling this empty space with Dunnage Airbags stops the product from moving and getting damaged in transit. The Dunnage Bags at Exporta are extremely strong as detailed in our video below where we actually drop a Nissan Navarra one to one to prove the strength.
Dunnage air bags come in a variety of sizes and can be small or up to 2 metres in height. These dunnage bags have incredible flexibility and can be placed inside a container, in a pallet box, or around products or other objects. They provide excellent product protection and padding, preventing your goods from taking damage in transit. Best of all, they can be reused. Simply deflate at the end of the transit and reinflate as and when you need product protection.
