Dunnage bags, also known as airbags, and inflatable bags, are used to secure and stabilize cargo. Introduced around 1970, Dunnage bags provide convenient and cost-effective cargo stabilization in ISO sea containers, closed railcars, trucks, and oceangoing vessels.
Dunnage airbags consist of closed chambers made from an elastic film filled with air. Dunnage bags can be used to stabilize, secure, and protect cargo during all sorts of transportation. Dunnage bags are placed in the void between the cargo. Dunnage bags can be used in all modes of transportation.
There are two kinds of Dunnage bags: Polypropylene Woven and Kraft. The sizes and dimensions vary according to the weight of the pallets, the dimensions of the container. At the same time, they are classified by “levels” referring to the quality (strength) of the Dunnage Bags.
