Temperature Controlled Storage

The Rising Need For Temperature Controlled Storage

Temperature controlled storage is a topic that is getting a lot of buzz lately, and for good reason. It is an integral part of storing climate-sensitive items such as food, pharmaceuticals and similar items. If these items are stored in the wrong climate, without temperature controlled storage, they could be ruined. Of course that is the last thing anyone wants for their business.

The growing popularity of e-commerce brings with it the need for more temperature controlled space in facilities across the globe. With experts anticipating an expected expansion of more than 30 million square feet of cold storage in the next few years, the need for these types of facilities is on the rise.

Temperature controlled space can be costly to construct and operate. When going this route for your company, you want a partner that can give you the exact solution that meets your needs. By working with our expert design team, you can rest easy knowing you will get optimal utilization out of your facility. Our priority is to make sure that not only are your needs met, but that your project is also completed on time and on budget.

Modex 2018

Come See Us at Modex!

Modex is nearly underway in Atlanta! From April 9th through the 12th, Atlanta will be hosting the trade show at the Georgia World Congress Center, and we will be there!

What is Modex?

Modex is a tradeshow that highlights manufacturing and supply chain industry standards. This show connects people with others in the field, facilitating networking opportunities and exchanging ideas for best practices in your industry.

So what does this mean for us at Storage Solutions? We have been attending Modex since it started, and every year, our team comes back with great ideas for use of technology and innovative solutions for our clients. We will also be sending quite a few of our employees to the trade show. Tim Bangert, Tim Fonderoli, Eric McDonald, Dani Hasty, Frank Blanton, Brian Blanner, and Kevin Rowles will all be in attendance.

Tim Fonderoli states, “Modex allows me to show my customers hands-on how a system comes together to maximize their storage area and make it more efficient and cost-effective. Plus, this gives us a chance to speak directly with the manufacturer in case our customer has a unique application rather than the normal rack and shelving storage.”

Storage Solutions representatives will be on site for the entirety of the show, so make sure to say hello!

Project Management: A Schedule to Fulfill Your Needs

One of the many benefits you will receive when working with our project management team is a detailed project schedule. This schedule is created online through Smartsheet and is included with any project we work on. From equipment delivery, to your go-live date and everything in between, you will be able to see a detailed outline of everything to expect.

A detailed schedule to take the hassle out of your project

With all the dynamic facets that come with a project, it can be difficult to ensure things work out perfectly. Our team will create a road-map for the project, finding all paths necessary to meet necessary deliverable dates. This will help to ensure your project is not only done on time, but also on budget. With this schedule continuously updated throughout the life of the project, you will always know what to expect. Furthermore, we ensure that all time on your project is fully utilized by coordinating equipment deliveries, installation crews, etc.

 

In addition to having access to this tool, our team will be in contact with you every step of the way. From the day that you purchase your equipment to well past the project’s completion, we will be your partner throughout the entire process to ensure you are satisfied.

Above all, our goal is to be the experts to take on project management and save you headaches. If you want to learn more about our full project management service, click here.
