Seguin, TX Frozen Storage Q&As
1). What are the challenges facing cold chain managers today and what is being done to address these challenges?
In addition to dealing with rising costs, cold chain managers are also faced with limited warehouse space suitable for storing their temperature-sensitive inventories. The costs and complexities associated with building and maintaining facilities designed specifically for frozen and cold storage have hindered their growth. Also the development of new technologies and the switch in consumer preferences from frozen to fresh make keeping up with demand difficult. Some facilities, like the Seguin frozen storage warehouse, address that challenge by offering convertible storage space that can be adapted to different uses that require variations of refrigeration and freezer space.
2). What advantages does the Seguin, TX location offer cold chain managers?
Seguin, TX is an ideal location for the logistics industry, especially for frozen warehousing options, due in large part to its strategic location in south central Texas. Situated on I-10 and only seven miles south of I-35, the Seguin frozen warehouse facility is under an hour’s drive from both San Antonio and Austin. The facility offers proximity to the Union Pacific Railroad’s San Antonio Intermodal Terminal as well as to the deep-water ports of Port Corpus Christi and Port of Houston. This location provides easy access to four of the country’s largest consumer markets making it possible for businesses’ inventories to reach millions of consumers within a five-hour drive.
3). What special features should cold storage facilities offer supply chain managers today?
Because cold storage facilities are designed to hold temperature-sensitive items like food and medicine, these warehouses should be food-grade rated and have FDA and USDA approvals. These facilities should provide easy access to major transportation routes to ensure timely distribution and provide a real-time inventory management system for efficient order fulfillment. Additionally, proper ventilation and preventive measures for avoiding contamination from exposed insulation, glass breakage, and pests are important.
