Raymond Refrigerated Warehousing Solutions

Maintaining operations in a refrigerated warehouse or freezer can be difficult on both personnel and equipment. Raymond West offers ideal solutions for cold storage facilities.

Cold storage warehouse numbers are increasing.  With the development and demand for temperature sensitive pharmaceuticals as well as consumer preference shifting to online grocery shopping, the footprint of cold storage facilities is expected to continue growing.

Online grocery sales are expected to hit $100 billion by 2025 and in order to keep up with this trend, cold storage distribution centers will have to shift from retail to industrial properties.

Raymond Equipment is Built to Withstand Harsh Conditions

Whether you are operating in a refrigerated warehouse or a blast freezer, you will likely face many challenges. Let Raymond help bring peace of mind knowing you have reliable forklifts engineered specifically to withstand the cold temperatures.

Raymond lift trucks are tested and proven to operate efficiently in our own facility built to replicate the harshest cold conditions with cycles of freezing and thawing, ensuring that all applications from docking and stocking to reaching maximum heights, as well as everything in between will meet your demands. Pairing the forklifts with options to increase operator warmth and comfort in temperatures far below zero can further increase your uptime and productivity.

ThermaKit System

Keep your reach truck operators as comfortable and productive as possible when temperatures dip to -20ºF.  The ergonomically designed heated control handle allows operators to wear lighter gloves for enhanced mobility.
