How big a deal is refrigerated storage, really?
As we described in a recent blog post, demand is growing fast. Pre-pandemic, less than 4% US grocery shopping was online, while 20% and 40% of footwear and consumer electronics respective spending was online – there's enormous scope for increase in grocery shopping online, and we’re seeing it start to happen. 49% consumers have bought groceries online – expected to rise to 70% by 2022
Where does it fit in the delivery chain?
Refrigerated Storage is a critical component in the 'cold value chain.' A manufacturer typically needs to store goods cold before shipping to their customers, and those customers often need to store goods cold before final delivery to end users, who may then also need to store cold before use.
Which industries need it?
A wide range of businesses utilize cold storage - from the obvious perishable foods to biopharmaceuticals and nutrients, wholesale flowers & plants, and many others
Can any provider offer refrigerated storage?
Simply put, No!
Rules for handling, storage and shipping of goods in refrigerated conditions are much more stringent than normal, requiring more attention to detail. It's expensive to provide - facilities cost a lot to set up and run, with particular attention to energy efficiency. So make sure you choose your provider carefully
