Cold Storage Industry Software

The cold storage industry is a vital component of the supply chain, providing temperature-controlled storage and transportation services for perishable goods. This industry is essential for preserving the quality and safety of products such as food, pharmaceuticals, and other temperature-sensitive items. THINK’s warehouse management system software was able to offer detailed and effective FIFO control using a number of criteria including ‘best before’ and ‘use by’ date. To meet food specific requirements such as the need to step out of FIFO and pick from later batches on demand where long distance shipping is required (all controlled by user permissions) THINK’s WMS had to support and be compliant with HACCP, can be configured to support product compliance. THINK has also worked with other prominent suppliers to the cold storage industry including Tesco and Bowman Stores, and XPO Logistics.
