Temperature-Controlled VS Climate-Controlled Storage FacilitiesJune 29, 2022 7:16 pm Leave your thoughts
K-Way Trucking provides many shipments that end up in temperature-controlled storage facilities. However, many customers are confused about what the difference is between a temperature-controlled storage unit and refrigerated warehousing. The two terms can sound so similar to one another that some people think that they are exactly the same thing. Here, we explain the differences.
Temperature-Controlled Storage Rooms
Temperature-controlled units are a general term used to refer to a warehouse that can be set to a specific temperature range that may be best used for accommodating certain types of goods. This means it may be a cooled or heated room designed to accommodate the specific temperature needs of the products placed within it.
Certain products are very sensitive to temperature and require a room to be set within a certain range to keep the product from spoiling. As such, temperature-controlled rooms are highly valuable to the companies that ship products that require these specifications.
Many products require storage at a particularly cold temperature to keep the product fresh and consumable. Refrigerated units keep the products that are contained within between a temperature of 33 and 55 degrees Fahrenheit. This is particularly useful for products such as dairy, eggs, and other food consumables that need to be kept chilled to be digestible by humans without the risk of contracting an illness.
Companies May Require Both Types of Service
It is fair to say that most companies may require either refrigerated or temperature-controlled solutions for their various products being shipped at any given time. The flexibility to choose one type of warehouse solution or the other in order to store the product is much appreciated by many companies.
It is extremely helpful to have these types of units available throughout the country so that products shipped to various geographic locations can always be stored at proper temperatures to ensure safety and to meet all regulatory requirements for those products to be served to consumers.
It is best to work with a partner you can trust to provide these units to you no matter where you happen to be in the country. If you should you need to work with them somewhere that you do not typically provide service to it is best to know that they have refrigerated units and temperature-controlled rooms in various areas throughout the country.
These days, business is a global task that you should participate in without fear that your products will be spoiled due to improper temperature controls. Partner with a company that can provide you with this type of service at all times, and you will delight your customers and continue to have their business long into the future. Act now to secure a contract with a company that will step up and provide outstanding service for you today.
