Founded in 2014, Tianjin Port Sunlon Food is a professional cold-chain management enterprise specialized in warehousing and transportation. Tianjin Port Sunlon Food now has 12,000m2 cold storage, with the total capacity of 25,000 pallets, which is divided into four independently temperature-controlled storage areas with temperatures available ranging from minus 25 degrees Celsius to 5 degrees Celsius. Sunlon Group aims to supply superior food, ingredients and service for the capital of China and even the whole northern region, so it has a set of strict quality control standards for purchasing, storage and logistics.



With a complex and robust set of warehouse requirements, Sunlon need assistance with configuring the warehouse racking and selecting material handling equipment to support the rack design. As soon as the company started operating, the warehouse quickly reached its full capacity and a large number of forklift drivers needed to be onboarded and trained as quickly as possible. Sunlon needed to optimize its storage space and its operation to run as efficiently as possible.


Crown's experience in warehouse workflows and design, coupled with lift trucks matched to the warehouse environment, resulted in an efficient warehouse configuration that optimized storage and the flow of goods through the warehouse, enabling Sunlon to store 30 percent more pallets in the space. The Crown solution also included training for new operators, helping them to become proficient more quickly.
