A third party cold store can be a little tricky to manage as this facility is offsite and run by a third party as an independent business. Their systems of management are different to that of a cold store inventory and stock management systems on-site in on-site cold stores. This can cause confusion and errors in managing stock if not carefully managed to ensure safe storage and the maintenance of stock.
