Where to go for cold storage construction in the future


The upsurge of cold storage construction is still going on, and blindly building cold storage room is definitely not advisable, and cold storage investment urgently needs to return to rationality. The investment and construction subject of each cold storage should ask a few more W before building the storage.

  What are the potential customers after the cold storage is completed?

   What other cold storages of the same type are around the cold storage room ?

   Is the location of the cold storage competitive?

   Can the cold storage information system support the new business?

   Does the cold storage standard meet the food safety requirements?

   Are cold storage qualification certificates, etc. compliant and legal?

   And, the more important core question-how can cold storage be operated better? Can the operational capacity keep up?


  Where should the cold storage construction go in the future? This question is worthy of every cold chain person's thinking. On the whole, the construction of cold storage mainly has the following major trends:

  First, the station must be high. The cold storage room is an important carrier to ensure food safety, a converter for rural revitalization and industrial upgrading, and a large refrigerator that urban consumers cannot do without. Therefore, cold storage construction must be compliant, goods must be legal, and operations must be standardized, the sanitation in the storage must be up to standard, and the safety of the cold storage must be the first priority.

   Second, see the full life cycle cost of the cold storage, don’t just count the current account. The cold storage project is a long-term process from land acquisition to later operation. In addition to land acquisition and construction costs, daily depreciation, empty warehouse rental, cold storage fees, equipment maintenance and upgrades, personnel salaries, inventory turnover, etc. are also necessary. Pay attention to soft costs.

   Third, the construction standards of cold storage will be improved more and more. Especially with the continuous improvement of the standardization and standardization of the cold chain industry, the construction of high-standard cold storage room has become the consensus of the industry. High-standard warehouses are not only limited to first-tier cities such as Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou and Shenzhen, but high-quality agricultural products producing areas, ports and wharves are all demand scenarios.

   Fourth, the construction cost of cold room will become higher and higher. With the rising cost of raw materials and labor, the construction of cold storage has huge investment, long recovery period, and high operating costs. Enterprises need to make careful decisions based on actual needs. At present, central enterprises, state-owned enterprises, logistics real estate developers with capital background, etc. may be more suitable to participate.

   Fifth, the price competition of cold storage room is becoming increasingly fierce. It is foreseeable that in the next 1-2 years, in first-tier cities, new first-tier cities, and second-tier cities with relatively strong cold chain circulation nodes, price competition between high-standard cold storage is inevitable, not to mention other low-standard cold storage. Cold storage room . The main reason is that the current high-standard warehouses are being built together, and the market demand for the stock cold storage cannot be met.

   Sixth, the construction of cold room is customized. From the current industry research data, we can also see that a variety of functional warehouses, including regional transit warehouses, supporting processing warehouses, and central kitchens, have a good development momentum, which can meet various customized needs of enterprises and receive more customers’ favor. The pattern of Qianku side will be broken.

   Seventh, cold storage operation is a shortcoming. How to make good use of the existing cold storage resources, make the best use of all kinds of resources, improve resource utilization and reduce input waste while meeting business operation and development needs, is another issue that needs urgent attention in future development. The lack of professional operation talents for cold storage is a problem facing all practitioners.

   Eighth, park-based and intelligent cold storage are the trends. The business needs that a single cold room can undertake are limited. From the single temperature zone in the past to the current multi-temperature zone, the changes in the cold storage room have been seen. The future cold storage will firstly evolve into the park, reflecting the advantages of clusters and multi-factor synergy. At the same time, the homework left in the aspects of intelligence and digitization must be made up quickly. The current cold storage room market is still a labor-intensive operation and cannot be sustained forever.
