Choosing a Mega Cold Store

When you have an increasing demand for high-capacity temperature-sensitive storage, you have a few options.

You could opt for a single cold-store, where 40ft and 45ft Cold Stores are most common, offering up to 23 pallet capacity.

If a single unit doesn’t meet your requirements then a Mega Cold Store is a fantastic way to dramatically increase your cold storage capacity. At CRS our standard Cold Stores can be combined to create a solution that drives efficient cold storage and meets your exacting requirements.

What is a Mega Cold Store

A Mega Cold Store is when our signature 40ft or 45ft Cold Stores are combined and linked internally to create a comprehensive cold storage solution, offering high-capacity storage, increased efficiency in best storage practice and maximum cost-efficiency.

If you have a BIG requirement that needs a BIG solution,
then a Mega Cold Store offers:

  • Increased Space
  • Integrated Storage
  • Efficient Best Storage Practice
  • Improved picking and rotation
  • Reduced costs*
  • Occupy less physical space*

(* when compared to separate units of the same size)

Our Mega Cold Store units can be tailored to your specification, choose as many units you require or have space for on-site.
Often our client will choose a double or triple unit, however, we have recently seen large clients opt for Mega Cold Stores of up to 20 stores wide, offering a storage capacity of over 500 pallets at 40ft.

The Cold Storage Units we use for our Mega’s are wider than a standard cold store and can fit 2 pallets alongside each other.
