The grocery industry is changing before our eyes. Recently, and increasingly under current guidelines, consumers are turning to online grocery shopping and curbside pickup. JD.com, a popular online retailer in China, reported its online grocery sales grew 215% YoY during a 10-day period alone in early February, 2020.1
Adapting to this changing demand for online order fulfillment is easy with the addition of an International Cold Storage (ICS) one-piece walk-in. These units come factory pre-assembled and tested for plug-and-go connection, providing a cost and time effective alternative to standard construction. Open space in a parking lot or on a sidewalk is now the perfect space for storing curbside pickup orders in a temperature-controlled environment until the customer comes to pick it up.
ICS refrigeration units are built to last in outdoor applications. The seamless design and 4-inch Urethane foam insulation allow for versatile use as freezers, coolers, or dry storage using only a single electrical connection, such as a generator.
We know your business is changing quickly, and ICS cold storage boxes are prepared to help you meet your demands. Units are 100% factory assembled and tested in Andover, KS, with delivery capabilities within 5 days and on-site installation requiring only 1 to 3 hours. This allows you to increase capacity to fulfill your curbside pickup orders almost as quickly as the need arises. As your business needs change, so can your ICS one-piece, thanks to optional built in forklift pockets for easy relocation.
ICS one-piece walk-ins have the following certifications and features:
