Enhancing US Cold Storage with Specialized Solutions

about Us Cold

US Cold Storage, established in 1899, is the third-largest Public Refrigerated Warehousing (PRW) company in North America. They specialize in providing Cold Storage, Transportation, and Logistics services to over 5,000 clients. With a vast network of Cold Storage Warehouses spread across 38 locations in the US, US Cold Storage is a leader in the industry. The company employs approximately 2,500 people across all its locations.

 

Our Relationship: We have been privileged to be one of the only two technology service providers for US Cold Storage. Our successful engagement with the company has spanned six years, during which we have collaborated closely with their team. Our dedicated team of 35 professionals has worked diligently to meet the technology needs of US Cold Storage.

The Challenge

  • Complex Data Integration: US Cold Storage operates across 38 locations and serves thousands of clients, resulting in a massive amount of data to be integrated and managed. Ensuring seamless data integration across various systems and databases posed a significant challenge.
  • Legacy Systems and Migration: The company relied on legacy systems that lacked scalability and advanced functionality. Migrating data from these systems to a new Warehouse Management System (WMS) required careful planning and execution to ensure data accuracy and continuity of operations.
  • Warehouse Visualization: Creating a 3D visualization system for warehouses presented challenges in terms of capturing accurate spatial data, rendering realistic models, and integrating the visualization with the WMS seamlessly.
  • Automation Implementation: Implementing Robotic Process Automation (RPA) required identifying manual and repetitive tasks, designing efficient automation workflows, and ensuring compatibility with existing systems and processes.

What did
Edvenswa Do?

  • Integration and Migration Support: Edvenswa provided expertise in integrating various systems and databases, ensuring smooth data flow and connectivity. They meticulously planned and executed the migration of data from legacy systems to the new WMS, minimizing disruption to operations.
  • Warehouse Management System Development: Edvenswa developed a custom Warehouse Management System tailored to US Cold Storage’s specific requirements. The system incorporated features such as inventory management, order processing, and real-time tracking, improving overall warehouse operations.
  • Cloud Data Warehouse Development: Edvenswa designed and developed a cloud-based data warehouse using the Azure Data Platform. This solution provided centralized and scalable data storage, enabling efficient data processing, analysis, and reporting.
  • 3D Visualization of Warehouse: Leveraging Unity, Edvenswa created a 3D visualization system that accurately represented US Cold Storage’s warehouses. They captured spatial data, rendered realistic models, and integrated the visualization with the WMS, enabling efficient space utilization, planning, and optimization.
  • Robotic Process Automation (RPA) Implementation: Edvenswa identified manual and repetitive tasks within US Cold Storage’s operations and implemented RPA solutions to automate them. They designed and deployed bots to handle tasks such as data entry, reporting, and inventory management, reducing errors and improving operational efficiency.
