viastore SYSTEMS, a leading material handling automation systems and software company, released a whitepaper titled, “Intelligent Systems to Keep the Cold Constant, the Quality High and Energy Use Low.” The energy saving potential in frozen storage warehouses and logistics centers is high. The key is to look at an entire solution, not just the effectiveness of single products. An intelligent management system avoids unnecessary goods movements and saves energy. To ensure efficient and economical operations, it is also possible to install energy saving drives, braking technology that recirculates energy back into the system, efficient design processes, and preplanned suitable packaging sizes to make better use of truck cargo capacity.
While ready-made frozen meals, frozen pizza, desserts, snacks, entries, etc., accounted for over 30% of the total global market revenue in 2012, this is expected to grow 3.9% from 2013 to 2019. A newer segment of frozen foods made with natural and organic ingredients, is becoming a target for manufacturers. Advancements in freezing technologies are allowing manufacturers to preserve the nutritional value of fruits and vegetables for a longer time period and in some cases restore key nutrients once lost using prior freezing processes.
So, across the board, consumption of frozen food continues to grow. Companies that manufacture, process, store, and distribute this food need to have ever-sophisticated capacities along the entire supply chain. Secure, transparent and energy-saving cold storage material handling automation solutions that ensure high process efficiency is the new ‘secret sauce’ for success.
