Shipping and/or cold storage containers have become increasingly popular with the general public because of their multiple uses. People have upcycled these containers to use as homes and workshops or as solutions for personal storage space. What is less known is the fact that refrigerated containers are also available for public use.

Some of the benefits that you could enjoy from a refrigerated container include:

Seasonal Food Storage

Reduce the amount of loss you have after harvesting your crops.  By placing the food items into cold storage, you can keep these foods fresher for an extended period. Easy way to increase and protect your harvest. Climate-controlled units are easy to set up and use.  These units can also be customized.

cold storage for restaurants

Restaurant Food Storage

Restaurants often face issues when trying to expand. Limited space means limited areas for food storage. Sadly, one of the most viable cold storage solutions is overlooked by restaurant owners: refrigerated storage containers. These containers can hold food at the right temperature to meet all health codes and can easily be placed at the rear of the property for convenience and aesthetic purposes.

Grocery Store Cold Storage

Buying in bulk allows grocery stores to keep prices down and offer sale items to their customers. Storing these bulk purchases can be a challenge. Using a customized cold storage container can help solve these problems cost-effectively and conveniently.

Outdoor Event Food Storage

Outdoor or Indoor Events

Festivals, fairs, and sporting events almost always involve food and drink areas. Organizers for these events need reliable cold storage solutions to meet the demands of their patrons. Many of these events take place in open areas where typical food storage is not available. Cold storage containers can hold food and drinks at the right temperature for the length of your event.

Storage on job sites

Construction or Job Site Cold Storage

Construction sites often need cold storage solutions for their crew. There are several reasons that construction sites may need this type of storage. Storing chemicals or other hazardous materials that need to be temperature regulated or having cold drinks and food products available for the crew are two great reasons for this type of storage on a job site.  Additionally, a storage unit can be converted to office space.

Natural Disasters – Emergency Situations

When a natural disaster or national emergency occurs, there is a vital need for cold storage. Many medicines and food and water need to be brought into these areas and need to be able to be preserved. Areas that are lacking electricity or sometimes standing buildings have nowhere to house these necessities. Using refrigerated containers run by generators can solve this problem and bring help to those in need.

These are only 6 of the top reasons for cold storage containers.  There are many more, to be sure.  Portables 360 works with their customers to create custom refrigerated storage solutions.
