Tesco are one of our best long-term clients. While we help keep their goods chilled year round, they needed our cold storage solutions more than ever in the run-up to December 25th last year.

THE CHALLENGE

TITAN Containers was tasked with helping Tesco to keep millions of pounds worth of stock refrigerated or frozen at stores across the country for three months from early November.

A mixture of turkeys, mince pies and other Christmas goodies, this stock was to play an essential role in keeping Tesco’s many customers happy over the festive period.

Tesco’s requirements were very specific. They needed to be able to store goods at a range of temperatures, so we helped them pick exactly what they needed from our collection of ArcticStore refrigerated containers.

We have models ranging from 10ft to 40ft capable of various different functions, including chilling down to -75°C.

THE SOLUTION

We worked with Tesco to calculate that 250 ArcticStore containers would meet their requirements.

Tesco are a fantastic customer and know their seasonal needs well in advance, so they were able to finalise their order from us in August. This gave us ample time to make sure we had everything lined up and ready to go by November.

The popular supermarket chain already rent more than 400 cold storage units from us year-round.

THE DELIVERY

Our goal from the start was to make the delivery of our 250+ ArcticStore containers as efficient as possible.

Our logistics team worked hard to ensure that the ArcticStore containers were delivered exactly where they were needed in two phases, as planned.

THE RESULTS

  • 600,000 turkeys kept frozen
  • 1.2 million mince pies chilled
  • 3,000 tonnes of veggies kept fresh
  • 2 million customers served
