Challenges facing the craft industry
Most of the handicrafts have a high unit value. Wooden handicrafts will become moldy when wet, and metal handicrafts will corrode when wet. Once such products are wet, it will cause huge economic losses to the merchants.
Here are some of the challenges that the craft industry often faces:
Handicrafts need to be packaged with packaging materials with low air permeability and water permeability to isolate them from contact with air, and place desiccant in the handicraft packaging to absorb moisture in the packaging environment. It is recommended to place calcium chloride desiccant in the shipping container during transportation to minimize the risk of moisture exposure to the cargo.
