Operating and maintaining a climate-controlled storage environment is critical to many businesses. When it comes to foodservice logistics the need for climate-controlled areas to suit frozen goods is non-negotiable. Industry standards and food storage regulations also continue to become more stringent.
With this in mind, businesses that warehouse these sorts of products are always mindful of the need to maintain standards while keeping productivity where it needs to be and costs down.
Here are some ideas to help you manage your cold storage warehouse efficiently and effectively.
Make sure your storage can handle the task
There are certain types of equipment that may break down when in prolonged exposure to extremely cold temperatures. Make sure your storage is equipped with the right technologies that can withstand the colder environment. Check that the wirings and storage shelves, pallet racking etc. won’t easily rust or degrade.
Divide space wisely
In temperature-sensitive facilities like cold storage warehouses, it is extremely important that you divide space wisely. This will help in the proper management of temperatures within the facility. Along with ensuring the quality of the products you’re storing, proper space division also helps in lowering energy costs and keeping the workflow as smooth as possible.
Remember to think about what you are storing and what is needed

Have contingency plans for delays
Delays are inevitable no matter how careful you may be. When that happens, the best thing is for you to have a ready plan to handle those delays and make up for the loss of time. Work with your transportation partners to devise a strategy in case of delays. Ensure that no matter what happens, the quality of the products you’re handling won’t be negatively affected.
