US Cold Storage Utilizes Raymond Cold Storage Warehouse Solutions
CHALLENGE: COLD STORAGE EFFICIENCY
United States Cold Storage Inc., a refrigerated warehouse operations, needed a solution for their network of cold-storage warehouses more than 190 million cubic feet of space in a harsh, cold environment.
The company provides cold-storage warehousing for a complete range of perishable food products, pharmaceuticals and other items, and had just opened two new facilities in Wilmington, Ill., and Lebanon, Ind.
SOLUTION: MAXIMIZE STORAGE CAPABILITIES
USCS worked with Arbor Material Handling Inc., a Raymond Solutions and Support Center, to select the lift truck for U.S. Cold Storage's new facilities. The combined lift trucks fleet totaled 71 trucks - including reach trucks, sit-down and stand-up counterbalanced lift trucks, order pickers and pallet trucks.
In addition, each reach truck was equipped with the Raymond ThermaKit™ system to keep operators more comfortable when maneuvering in frigid temperatures.
RESULT: RELIABLE EFFICIENCY
USCS and the Raymond lift trucks efficiently handle more than 100 million pounds per month while running as many as 16 to 18 hours per day, seven days a week, the the demanding refrigerated environments.
Associated Material Handling Inc. and Allied Handling Equipment Co. service U.S. Cold Storage’s facilities in Lebanon and Wilmington, respectively, through a comprehensive service agreement.
