A cold storage is a facility that mainly stores food products such as fruits, vegetables, meat and fish, that are time-sensitive and can easily get spoiled if they are kept under normal conditions.
Warehouse logistics refers to all the complex factors involved in warehousing such as movement, organization and management of products.
The recommendation is to check the temperature every 4 hours, but if you check it every 2 hours, you can have time to apply corrective actions in case the temperature went up.
Cold storage facilities are used to maintain the perishable food products at an optimal temperature, in order to avoid spoilage.
