Freezer containers are widely used equipment for cold storage on an industrial scale. This is because they are mobile, come in different sizes, do not require planning permission.
The main advantage lies in the fact that this type of cold storage can be rented as and when extra capacity is needed. Therefore, companies can optimise the amount of cold storage they need at different times throughout the year, which keeps overheads lower as there is never unused capacity.
However, there are also other advantages which you may not have thought about at first.
Callouts and maintenance
Reputable freezer container companies will have a callout service which can be used as and when companies require.
The callout service is available 24 a days. Companies will also have a maintenance policy in order to keep their cold storage solutions working smoothly which will prevent the need for callouts.
These two services are of great benefit to customers because they do not need to worry about paying for huge maintenance fees as the risk is all on the leasing company.
Companies with fixed cold storage facilities may be susceptible to these high fees and won’t necessarily have someone on hand 24-7 to fix technical issues.
Time spent worrying about breakdowns is eliminated meaning more time for important tasks and a healthier business.
Freezer containers are mobile, therefore can be used anywhere. Therefore, companies can move their cold storage outside.
This has a huge benefit as internal space can be used to service other purposes, for example extra warehousing space, storage space, meeting space and so on.
No matter what the space is used for, it is much more useful and is put to better use, leading to higher productivity.
Only one model of freezer container is needed, whether the container will be used for freezing, cooling or refrigerating.
You do not have to invest in multiple locations to achieve different temperatures. This gives flexibility in the type of products that a company stocks, i.e. if a sharp demand spike for frozen produce follows a slow in demand for refrigerated produce, companies can adapt quickly and accordingly.
The key to purchasing a freezer container is to first find out what your exact requirements are, what flexibility you will need and what your overall business aims are.
After this is decided, companies need to choose a reputable company with a range of resources which can be tailored to your needs.
One such company is CRS who provide a very wide range of cold storage products to an equally diverse range of clients from multiple industries.
