Storage spaces must be built based on exact parameters, starting from the dedicated products. One of the biggest challenges is to create and maintain a constant temperature, especially when storing perishable foods such as fruits and vegetables. Other challenges include battery capacity optimizing, minimizing space loss, and condensation difficulties.
Companies in this industry apply several practical solutions, such as the use of reliable handling equipment to ensure a fast flow of goods to keep food fresh. Cold storage operations bring challenges to the goods handling because temperatures below zero degrees Celsius can affect the equipment. Therefore, to prevent breakdowns and repair costs, special types of equipment for cold storage and processes and systems automation are recommended to reduce the number of operators in cold areas and to have greater control over the warehouse activity.
