Frequently Asked Questions


Cool store or cold storage is a large refrigerated room or building designed for storage of goods in an environment below the outdoor temperature. Products needing refrigeration include fruit, vegetables, seafood and meat, medicines, processed food etc.

Cold storage can keep your products at a set temperature that you choose. Likewise, it keeps the products last longer and keeps them fresh. For example, if you want to keep the fruits and vegetables fresh, you can keep them at the right temperature to eliminate the chance of damages or boost life.
The same foods are stored in a warm environment that will attract pests or mold faster. Perishable foods will be spoilt at the wrong temperature. It can lead to changes in color, flavor, and texture. Food that has not been kept at the right temperature will also enhance food poisoning chances. No one wants to risk their products.

There are a lot of different products that need cold storage to stay in good condition. It isn’t just for meats, fruits, and vegetables. And the examples above were just a short list of items that should be stored in temperature controlled environments.
A cold storage warehouse can store your products at the right temperatures and even keep them that way during long trips. This means you don’t have to worry about things like that anymore and can turn your attention back to running your business.

Refrigerated transport, (also referred to as “reefer”) is a freight shipping method that specializes in the transportation of foods and products that require a temperature-controlled means of transport. The trailer that is hauling the food and other products has a built-in refrigeration system to keep any and all products in their pre-shipped state.

Refrigerated transport  is a solid option for shippers who need to safely ship temperature-controlled freight. A few of the benefits of refrigerated trucking include:
Supply and demand: Fresh products will always remain in high demand. Refrigerated trucking allows trailers to safely haul and transport these products all across the country.
Wide variety: Refrigerated transport  can be used for many products in addition to foods that require temperature control. Plants, pharmaceuticals, and personal care products are some of the other commonly transported goods that rely on refrigerated transport .
Protection: The protection of the products and materials is considered the greatest asset of refrigerated transport. Due to the nature and sensitivity of the products being transported, the trailer itself is better equipped to protect against spoilage, damage (from temperature changes), and varying weather condition


The storage temperature is the temperature at which a product is stored. For cold chain products and the cold supply chain, maintaining the correct storage temperature is critical.

The cold chain product storage temperature ranges are different for every type of cold chain product.
 *Deep freeze: -18.4 to -22oF (-28 to -30oC) for seafood and some meat.
* Frozen: 3.1 to -4oF (-16 to -20oC) for meat and some produce.
* Chilled: 35.6 to 39.2oF (2 to 4oC) for some dairy products, fruits and vegetables, and fresh meat.
* Pharmacy: 35.6 to 46.4oF (2 to 8oC) for pharmaceutical products including vaccines and medication.
* Cold chain: 53.6 to 57.2oF (12 to 14oC) for processed food, over-the-counter medications and pharmaceutical products, and fresh produce.
