TCI Carriers description: Degassing

Degassing involves opening the container and allowing the gasses to blow away under the supervision of a certified ‘gas doctor’.

In the conditioned environment at the terminal, methyl bromide is used for gassing the containers for export purposes. Moths, beetles, cockroaches, mites, and eels are every shipper’s worst nightmare. Without countermeasures, container loads can fall victim to these unwelcome guests. In addition, many countries ban imports of foreign life forms that constitute a threat to their domestic ecosystems.
