Optimising operational efficiencies with mobile solutions designed for cold chain

When it comes to mobile devices being used in cold conditions, you will find that they won't always perform well. In extreme temperatures, you will find that the functions of the mobile devices will become impaired, particularly if they are constantly moved in and out of a normal environment and cold environment. But when it comes to cold storage warehouses, you will find that they still do not have adequate mobile devices that can withstand extreme temperatures. 

Here are three reasons why you should make sure you have the correct mobile devices for cold storage warehouses. 

1.Adapt to your environment. 

Cold storage warehouses have several detrimental effects when it comes to mobile devices. Workers do not have to time to stop while their devices battle to cope with the harsh conditions. If you do not provide your employees with the correct devices during their shift, they can struggle with their devices freezing, the screen fogging over, and all together stop working. Temperature changes can also create internal and external condensation, which results in loss of time for your employees and possible damage, which will then need to be sent for repair. This can become quite costly. 

2.Make inefficiency a matter of the past. 

All mobile devices are created differently and for different purposes and environments. You need to make sure that your devices can last in cold environments. Plus, make sure that they can still function even when workers are wearing gloves, so they can still enter and retrieve data as quickly and as efficiently as possible without needing to take their gloves off.  

3.Keep it fresh. 

Supermarket chains have been a crucial part in wanting supply chain automation in cold storage, globally. This creates a higher product quality assurance. Cold storage warehouses found that by implementing mobility helped workers handle the products safely and make it more efficient. This helps prevent loss of perishable goods.
