What is a temperature-controlled warehouse?

A temperature-controlled warehouse uses heating or cooling systems (HVAC) to maintain exact temperature ranges for storing perishable or non-perishable goods before they are shipped to retailers.

Temperature-controlled warehousing helps protect products from potential spoilage, damage, or contamination caused by fluctuating temperatures. In a temperature-controlled environment, products are more likely to retain their quality, have an extended shelf life, and stay safe for human use or consumption.

Different products require storage at different temperature ranges, which include ambient (40°F–90°F), mid-temperature (55°F–75°F), refrigerated (28°F–42°F), or frozen (0°F and below)
