But, did you know that automated cold warehouse technology has many benefits
over traditional warehouses?
With the a growing demand for cold chain logistics, the business case for
automating temperature-controlled warehouses, either chilled or frozen, is stronger
What is a cold chain warehouse?
The term cold chain is logistics and management of packaged goods for
temperature sensitive products that need to be either chilled or frozen.
Cold Chain logistics are used to increase a product’s shelf life and maintain a quality
standard for a long duration of time. Food stored in the cold chain warehouses
- Fruits & vegetables
- Frozen desserts
Many healthcare products also require specific cooler temperatures to be
maintained in warehouse storage including the following:
- Blood plasma
- Frozen pharmaceuticals
A controlled cold temperature warehouse will maintain the bio-chemical and
physical properties of health care products and frozen or chilled foods and
Storage in the cold supply chain warehouse will also prevent product spoilage and
increase shelf life. This reduces waste and increases the overall bottom-line of the
manufacturer or producer.
In order to maintain these foods fresh for the long run, there needs to be proper
cold chain logistics system. A key ingredient to making the cold chain system work
is the cold warehouse.
