LiftOne Solutions for Food Distribution and Cold Storage

Storing and distributing food products at the optimal temperature requires a high-performing supply chain system — even one broken link can result in spoiled, unsellable goods. In addition, companies must follow strict regulations and protocols designed to ensure consumer safety. Food and cold storage warehouse management teams need a partner that understands their specific industry challenges and can provide solutions to help them succeed.


From growing customer demands, managing delivery deadlines to labor retention, food service warehouses face unique challenges. Add food safety and contamination concerns to the priority list, and it is evident that operating to control costs can be an obstacle.

Food Safety

Food Safety

Temperature control is critical to ensure that your food products do not spoil. With U.S. food recalls exceeding $55 million per year, it is critical to follow strict food safety regulations, and trace movement of your product to pinpoint possible contamination sources.


  • Optimize transparency throughout your supply chain by using telematics, allowing you to determine the fastest route, minimizing the chance of food spoilage
  • Use equipment designed specifically for cold storage which protects your assets, and operator comfort and productivity
  • Upgrade to lithium-ion power eliminating emissions, and utilize food grade oils to reduce the risk of contamination and product recalls
  • Incorporate temperature control monitors and systems throughout your supply chain
