CRS were commissioned by a leading logistics company to provide a solution for storing eutectic plates for transport of temperature sensitive food products through air-side security at an International Airport. The company required a fast freezing solution off-site, providing effective freezing for a large number of eutectic plates.
The plates were used in the delivery of good to the airport retailers. All deliveries to the airport need to be X-Rayed to ensure they are legitimate, at present this can only be done by using trolleys.
When large deliveries of temperature sensitive goods arrive at the airport they are distributed into trolleys. Freezer Plates are used to provide effective insulation for the goods as they are transported from cold storage through X-ray and onto the retailers. This ensures the cold-chain isn’t broken and the retailers receive their goods at the highest quality. Its also enables the security measures to be undertaken by the airport staff without the pressure of rapid deterioration of stored goods.
The logistics company realised that their current solution for storing the freezer plates was inefficient and no-longer cost-effective. CRS assed the site and the company’s requirement and proposed they install two bespoke 10ft Blast Freezers in place of the existing solution.
Our recommendation provided increased storage capacity, reduced freezing time and vastly improved running costs. Our 10ft Blast Freezers were customised with two refrigeration units, providing accelerated cooling.
The impact of our recommendation was huge, the logistics company found that the new solution not only provided better cost and efficiency savings, but also made the process of loading and unloading the plates much easier.
