Helping Ocado with a key challenge
04 February 2019
Online grocery specialist Ocado is a key innovators in the food market, but an early challenge they faced was keeping chilled and frozen products cold and in safe conditions but, importantly out of the warehouse space, to keep the warehouse free for the new products constantly coming in.
CopriSystems was brought in to design a bespoke solution to their problem.
This was achieved by designing and installing a ‘tree’ canopy, or T shaped canopy. This allowed the vans to be loaded and left undercover, plugged into mains electricity, until they were ready to deliver.
By keeping the elements away from the bodies of the vans, it protects the product and helps keep the unit at a more stable temperature, preventing unnecessary electricity usage.
Additionally, with Ocado’s vast fleet of vans rapidly increasing CopriSystems also installed a canopy for basic maintenance and vehicle washing.
