The unbroken cold chain
06 November 2017
As summer turns up the heat, so does the challenge of ensuring perishable goods maintain their optimum temperature throughout their cold chain distribution process.
Easilift Loading Systems' 4-sided inflatable shelter creates a secure environmental seal between the temperature-controlled vehicle and the cold storage facility, allowing vehicle doors to be opened from inside the cold store only after docking has been completed.
As well as helping to maintain an unbroken cold chain, the system has other key benefits. Access to the vehicle is fully controlled from within the cold store and therefore limited to cold store personnel; contamination risks are reduced as the doors do not need to be opened prior to docking; the vehicle driver can remain in his cab, reducing on-site health and safety issues; and faster docking speeds up the loading and unloading process.
Customers who have installed Easilift’s 4 sided inflatable shelters have reported dramatic reductions in temperature fluctuations, helping to reduce energy consumption by as much as 50%, as well as increased efficiencies in vehicle loading and unloading.
