40ft Refrigerated Container helps save Christmas for UKs largest retailer

In the run up to Christmas 2013, CRS were approached by the UKs largest retailer, Tesco to provide a last minute solution to a refrigerated storage issue. The client needed an extra capacity of at least 19 more pallet spaces for chilled goods storage just weeks before Christmas. CRS quoted for and provided a 40ft refrigeration unit with a 19 pallet capacity. The product provided featured a raised T-section floor, an easy clean food grade interior and standard double leaf container doors. The container was fitted with a Carrier refrigeration unit to efficiently store products at the required 4˚C.
