Cold storage is a vital consideration for many different companies in a wide range of industries, today. At Arctic Cold Storage, we work with clients in many different areas, including the following:
- Food retail
- Pharmaceutical manufacturing
- Shops and local businesses
- Food outlets
- Food manufacturing
While our customers in each of these areas have very specific needs, our cold storage solutions are more than enough to satisfy them. If your product requires temperature control and an experienced, expert hand during warehousing and shipping, it’s important to know how to choose a cold storage provider.
One of the most crucial considerations when choosing a cold storage provider is the location of their storage centre. Is it easily accessed? Is it within a short distance of major traffic arteries? Does it provide access to other areas of Ireland? For instance, our cold storage centre is located just south of Limerick, with access to all of the major transportation arteries. We serve Cork, Galway, Limerick and Claire.
Cold Storage Facilities
The facilities on offer are also of the utmost importance. Is the facility built to conserve energy while still maintaining the right temperature? Does the facility offer chilling, ambient temperature storage, and frozen storage? Our facility encompasses over 10,000 square metres, and provides options for virtually any level of cold storage, from ambient storage to deep freeze conditions.
Integration with Other Solutions
While a cold storage facility should definitely be able to provide you with basic warehousing and shipping options, there are times you might require more. For instance, we offer cross-docking, which ensures the swiftest possible delivery of time-sensitive products, ensuring that foods arrive as fresh as possible. This is an example of “just in time” shipping, and it can save you a great deal of money and time, while building stronger relationships with your most valued customers.
Finally, security is a major concern. Make sure that the cold storage provider you choose takes the security of your products very seriously, and has a fully trained staff, as well as a state-of-the-art security solution in place.
Choosing the right cold storage provider doesn’t have to be a hassle. Look for companies that can meet your temperature control needs, that help you save time and money, and that work with you to ensure the highest quality products are delivered. We invite you to learn more about how Arctic Cold Storage can do all of this and much more.
