Instate Cold Storage Services: Temporary Storage

As the Midwest's leading expert in cold storage and distribution, it is our company's obligation to offer every service necessary for the process. As a family-owned business, we promise superior customer service and the best technologically advanced options in the market. 

Temporary Storage

When your shipment runs into delivery issues, Interstate Cold Storage can help with temporary storage options. We work closely with the USDA to ensure your products are kept at inspection-passing quality. Our equipment is also able to provide floor load and slip sheet containers. 

Quick Freezing

As greater importance is placed on distribution forecasting and on time delivery, our quick-freezing and tempering capabilities offer remarkable flexibility in planning and modifying your needs. With requests as small as one pallet, your product can be frozen and shipped quickly. Tempered product can be safely brought back to temperature and ready for shipment in days, not weeks.

Product integrity is never compromised, as everything is monitored throughout the process by guidelines you set. Manual and electric temperature readings are taken on a consistent basis throughout the process too

Temporary Storage


We offer 24 hour a day temperature-controlled warehouses to ensure your cold products stay at the necessary temperatures in transit. Our specialized software applications offer AS2 protocol and RF barcode scanning. Security is of high regard at Interstate Cold Storage, so we have surveillance going 24/7. You always know what is happening with your products, because we also offer real-time online tracking of inventory.
