USING REEFERS TO STORE SURPLUS GOODS

Sometimes to meet consumer demand during busy periods, produce can overwhelm businesses existing storage capacities. This issue can be even more critical for companies working with perishable goods, including agricultural producers and manufacturers of chemical and medical supplies, among others. Cold storage containers can help alleviate this problem and provide means for companies to handle larger volumes of cargo.

With the advantage of being both affordable to lease and reliable in various roles, temperature-controlled containers are increasingly used for on-site storage of perishable goods before they are sold to the consumer. Here is a summary of their most important qualities.

How can my company benefit from using reefers?

Refrigerated containers are one of the most versatile forms of cold storage currently available. They can hold practically any cargo that needs to be kept at a constant temperature, including many types of foodstuffs and farming produce and even temperature-sensitive equipment. In addition, they can be delivered to practically any location and be used to store perishable goods on-site, virtually guaranteeing their freshness. Businesses can also use reefers to streamline the delivery of manufactured goods and allow for larger batches to be handled on-premises on a temporary basis.

How safe are perishable goods when they are kept in refrigerated containers?

Assuming you get a premium quality container, you have nothing to worry about. High-end reefers can reach temperatures -35°c from to +30°c , and they can maintain the same level of cooling for as long as needed, regardless of external conditions. Since they are self-powered, they can be used to store products in a wide number of locations. Spacewise containers are manufactured to the highest quality and are vermin, weather, and theft-resistant.

How can containers be used to simplify planning and logistics?

Thanks to their mobility and convenience, reefers can be deployed as needed and combined with brick and mortar storage or used independently to protect products from spoilage.

With three separate container sizes (10ft, 20ft, and 40ft) and a range of optional equipment to choose from, Spacewsie refrigerated containers offer large and small companies a lot of value. They can also bridge the gaps that occur when surplus goods arrive at the warehouse unexpectedly.

Tips for choosing the best container type

Several factors should be taken into account when you are deciding which containers to rent. Selecting the right size, capacity and minimum temperature are instrumental, as is understanding the terrain for your container's final location and any potential delivery restrictions.

I wish to say Spacewise (Sharon) response time is superb (even whilst she is on holiday!) and time between my enquiry and quote provided is remarkably quick.

Equipment delivery is good quality and clean. Commissioning (usually next day unless otherwise organised) is complete by suitably qualified engineers and an ‘operating’ explanation given to the end user.

In addition their after-sales support is very good, tech. offering advice and engineer if deemed appropriate.

We contacted Spacewise to supply us with 2 refrigeration storage units on behalf of the client and their bar supplier as a long hire during the peak season. We haven’t experienced a single problem with them and we have found the team to be helpful and reliable at all times, particularly Sharon Rimell whom we have been liaising with. Happy bar company, happy client! They come highly recommended.
