Cold storage warehouse managers have an enormous burden in taking care of daily business, while simultaneously staying on the hunt for ways to improve how they handle challenges ranging from strict regulations for food handling to storage and temperature rules. Such challenges will include maintaining the perfect temperature for proper food storage, while keeping staff and equipment warm enough to perform at peak efficiency. Your reputation, profits and ultimate success or failure depend on recognition and successful management of these and many other common challenges.

The largest segment of frozen foods is in the meat, cheese, poultry, seafood and dairy worlds that make up the mainstay of perishable food items. Facility managers who handle these time- and temperature-sensitive products must be on top of their game to prevent small material handling mistakes that could turn into catastrophic financial losses. In the cold storage world, little things really matter.

Time Management and Compliance

Efficiency and product control are high priorities for cold storage facility managers. They must use time-tested processes as well as implement new industrial equipment that makes their business run more smoothly and, ultimately, more profitably. These professional managers must constantly look for systems and solutions that reduce waste, eliminate unnecessary cost and improve worker safety. The fundamental goal is to prevent losing food products and profit.

Protecting Food Products

Different products require unique temperatures to keep from spoiling. You’ll need to regulate and maintain both humidity and temperature in your warehouse to extend the life of your products as much as possible. It can be challenging and risky, and traditional temperature monitoring systems are 100 percent dependent on operator experience. Someone must be onsite to manage the whole system is managed and make proper adjustments if temperature or humidity fluctuate.

Upkeep of the Food’s Life Cycle

It’s no secret keeping frozen food from spoiling due to undergoing the wrong conditions is one of the biggest challenges in the market. Several issues can occur without the proper maintenance of a product’s lifecycle. You have to keep on top of the temperature of perishable products at all times if you’re in cold storage warehouse management.

Requirements for Accurate Product Tracing

At all times, you need to have accurate location information about the products that move through your warehouse, so you can determine affected products in situations with sudden or unexpected temperature changes. Without exact traceability, it would be impossible to locate these products. Fresh produce and similar perishable products require even more management and control over external factors like humidity and carbon dioxide.
