In modern business, the most successful company is the one who places the consumer at the heart of all company operations. Businesses that recognise this pay close attention to the peaks and troughs of consumer demand and tailor their equipment needs accordingly.
Therefore, businesses are experiencing a shift in their storage needs – particularly if they require large cold storage or freezing solutions. These companies are faced with the choice whether to invest in fixed freezing property, or to hire freezer containers, many are now opting for the latter.
The main advantage of hiring freezer containers is that renting provides a new level of efficiency, with regards to meeting the dynamic demand needs of consumers. Renting freezer containers offers a higher flexibility that consumer driven companies greatly require.
For example, the capacity can be increased or decreased in response to seasonal demand, i.e. Christmas for the meat, bakery and fruit industries, or the winter period for pharmaceutical companies.
Having spare freezing capacity throughout the year is an unnecessary expense, in which capital could be better invested on other aspects of the company.
Not only is investing in freezing property expensive and inefficient, but in modern society, there is a massive emphasis on corporate social responsibility. A company who decides to lease their freezing requirements do not have to get planning permission or build freezing capacity.
Therefore, renting freezer containers is increasing becoming a popular solution amongst companies who are serious about adopting a ‘green’ policy and reducing carbon footprint, which is a major unique selling point for companies.
Renting freezer containers clearly has substantial advantages; however, companies should be careful when choosing a cold storage company, as experience and high levels of service are required to make the investment worthwhile.
