SIAM Shipping: an expert of refrigerated warehouse services in Bangkok and its surroundings

Here are 2 tips to better understand and manage air-conditioned storage
Management of temperature and humidity
As you know, Thailand is a warm and humid country, which can be harmful to fragile materials and products such as foodstuffs.
Moisture and temperature control often go hand in hand, both must be managed in the same storage space. When the humidity in the air increases, the temperature can remain unchanged.
On the other hand, when the humidity in the air is falling, this creates an impact on the heat of the air that needs to be adjusted. Ventilation, air conditioning and heating systems ensure that the temperature is maintained at a preset temperature.
Dehumidifiers are used to manage humidity over hours and days. Air conditioners can vary the humidity levels by lowering the temperature in the storage space.
Use the best dehumidifier
The two main categories of dehumidifiers have mechanical or dehydrating functions.
Desiccants work with a chemical to remove moisture from the air. Because this kind of dehumidifier uses the heat from the air as a power supply, it can achieve great energy and financial savings. They are widely used to handle extreme humidity.
Mechanical (or refractory) dehumidifiers are the most common. Like air conditioners, they use a refrigerant that removes moisture. They can also handle extreme humidity, but also can be adjusted. As an example, works of art and books require this kind of storage.
Basics things to know about the warehousing in Thailand
Why is warehousing so crucial within the logistic chain?
Nowadays, warehousing has to be arranged everywhere before arrival at the recipient. Usually, large warehouses are located on the outskirts of large cities, where different products are centralized before being sent to the recipients.
Providers of warehousing services like SIAM Shipping are vital to your daily business activities, as it offers you a maximum flexibility to your business. In fact, by storing your goods in a warehouse, you can benefit from the possibility to deliver it at any time to any place in the country where it is stored, or internationally.
*Storage services with SIAM Shipping creates an unrivaled utility time!
Our warehouses represent a very important place in the business circuit as they allow your company to continue its production throughout the year by offering and selling their products whenever there is an adequate demand coming from the customers.
The warehouse need becomes very important because some goods are produced only during a particular season when they are requested throughout the year. In contrast, some goods are produced throughout the year but are sold only during certain periods of the year. Warehousing thus facilitates the organization of large-scale production and distribution of goods.
Warehouses represents a very important stage in the process of price stabilization. It is achieved by creating the utility of time by warehousing goods. Indeed, a drop of the prices of goods can be observed when their supply is abundant. On the other hand, an increase in their prices is observed when the slow season is avoided. Warehousing has a cost that is increasing day by day, so it is important to pay attention to the time spent by goods in warehouses.
Scope of risk
Goods that are stored in warehouses are often exposed to many risks such as theft, damage, fire, etc. Of course, warehouses are built in such a way as to minimize the risk of deterioration or fire (even caused by a natural event).
SIAM Shipping ensures a maximum security for the storage of your goods. In fact, our warehouses are equipped with the latest technologies related to safety and security, and a permanent presence on site is ensured by our staff.
The goods stored by the owner can be used as financial loans, which can be taken from the warehouse keeper. The goods in the warehouse serve as a security deposit for the warehouse keeper, who can use them as a means of pressure towards the owner.
In this way, warehousing can be a source of finance for businessmen in all aspects of business operations.
Classification and packaging
Nowadays, warehouses are starting to have better equipment and thus provide facilities for packaging, processing and classification of goods. Indeed, the goods can be packed according to specific sizes indicated by the owner.
SIAM Shipping provides the best and latest equipment related to warehousing services. In this way, we are able to provide facilities for premium packaging, processing and classification of goods. We can thus offer packing service for any of the goods you may have to store in our warehouse.
