Many growing businesses looking into warehouse solutions are unfamiliar with the industry. They might even harbor general apprehension about leaving their products in a warehouse. This may be caused by the common depictions of warehouses being giant, dusty buildings with little or no climate control. While some buildings may be set up that way, the fact is there are plenty of modern facilities that can provide the environment, cleanliness and security to help put their mind at ease. Companies dealing with these quality facilities are able to specify the exact conditions needed for the proper storage of their materials.
A popular feature of quality warehouse storage is the cold warehouse. These buildings are used to aggregate perishable items for repackaging or distribution, offering a variety of cold storage options at different temperature levels, so those with sensitive items don’t have to worry about spoilage. Available temperatures range from -20F, which is good for ice cream, all the way to 35F, which is a good temperature for traditional refrigerated items.
Humidity control is another environmental factor that is important for some types of items, such as produce and confectionaries. In some cases, both refrigeration and humidity control are needed, while for other items, only the humidity control will be required. Either way, modern warehouses are able to handle these needs.
Dry warehousing is the general description for a standard storage space, but that doesn’t mean that the conditions have to be hard on products. In fact, businesses that need extreme cleanliness to house their products can find dry warehouses that meet food-grade storage requirements and have an ASI “excellent” rating. Of course, there is also dry storage available to those with less-specialized needs. CWI Logistics has a large network of warehouses throughout Florida ensuring that there is enough specialized space for everyone.
