Cold Storage Warehousing

Cold storage warehouses are on the rise.  With the development and demand for temperature sensitive pharmaceuticals as well as consumer preference shifting to online grocery shopping, the footprint of cold storage facilities is expected to continue growing.

  • In the pharmaceutical industry, the products requiring refrigeration is expected to see an increase of 70% by 2021 (from 2017) leading to the need for more cold storage warehousing space.

  • Grocery sales are expected to hit $100 billion by 2024 and in order to keep up with this trend, cold storage distribution centers will have to shift from retail to industrial properties.

ThermaKit System
Available exclusively on Reach Trucks, the ThermaKit System helps keep your operators as comfortable and productive as possible in temperatures that dip to -20°F. The heated control handle allows operators to wear lighter gloves for enhanced mobility while the heated floor cushion not only keeps the operator's feet warm, but also reduced frost build-up inside the compartment. The thermostatically controlled heater will shut off when the forklift is in a non-freezer environment.
iBATTERY provides real time data that is vital to effectively manage batteries in cold storage environments. This system monitors battery temperature, water levels, charge intervals and the state of charge, providing access to information as quickly as it becomes available, not when it's too late.
