For nearly a century, United States Cold Storage has been making a name for itself in the frozen and refrigerated storage industry, providing frozen and refrigerated storage, transportation and logistics services to some of the largest American and international food producers. In its busy 498,000 square foot frozen storage warehouse in Bethlehem, PA, the company employs 140 forklift operators working three shifts every day of the week, in temperatures ranging from negative five to 35 degrees Fahrenheit.
To support the company’s continual growth, United States Cold Storage makes the most of its warehouse space with high racking. The company needed to maximize productivity and efficiency in a warehouse where high reaches were commonplace and do so with a material-handling partner with the same dedication to safety that United States Cold Storage has championed for decades. It also needed a durable lift truck to handle the rigors of a busy warehouse with a demanding 24/7 schedule and the harsh conditions of its temperature-controlled environment.
