De-Stuffing Containers

Container De-stuffing is a process that removes cargo from a shipping container. This can be done directly at the port but is most often completed at a warehouse or distribution center where the product counts are verified and organized before heading to their next destination.


What is Container De-stuffing?

Warehouses such as KAIN Logistics will inspect and verify the cargo while notifying you of any discrepancies or damage. When done correctly, container de-stuffing is a crucial step in the logistics process by allowing for the efficient movement of goods.

At KAIN Logistics, our warehousing team provides container de-stuffing (stripping or devanning) services for businesses operating in or looking to expand within Southern Ontario. We can accommodate most de-stuffing needs ranging from palletized shipments to floor loaded products. Our staff will safely offload inventory, scan for damages, palletize or store products as needed.
