Shipping Container Ventilation

Adding proper shipping container ventilation reduces heat, prevents moisture buildup, and allows the dispersal of VOCs that can be dangerous or unhealthy if allowed to build up. If you plan on using the container for storage, consider the safe storage temperature of the items you intend to store in it. If your storage container will be used as additional office space, ventilation will be required to keep interior temperatures comfortable and improve air circulation.

Containers were designed to be nearly airtight and prevent the flow of air across cargo. To ensure this, shipping container vents aren’t used for cargo applications.

With no ventilation, interior air temperatures can sometimes be up to 25 degrees higher than exterior temperatures. In humid climates, storage containers can build up moisture internally that can cause water damage to the paneling or items stored inside. If the container is being used to store items that off-gas Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs), it is critical that storage containers are modified with proper ventilation.
