How Can Your Raw Materials Benefit From Temporary Storage?

Purchasing raw materials is an integral part of most businesses. Generally, the raw materials are processed and turned into finished goods ready to be sold. However, before they are processed and sold, they often need to be temporarily stored in a way that maintains the quality. Often business seasonality is a factor that affects storage of raw materials and can put pressure on existing warehousing facilities.

Any damage to the materials – whether caused by improper storage or extreme weather – is going to increase the cost to the organisation and could delay production causing further problems down the line. This is why it’s so important for your organisation to have robust temporary storage for your raw materials.

Maintain the quality & integrity of your raw materials

Your raw materials must be stored and handled properly to remain uncontaminated because, as we said earlier, maintaining the quality of your raw materials affects the health of your end products. One way to do that is to use temporary storage shelters.

Loose and bulk materials such as phosphate, cement, RAP (recycled asphalt) etc are very valuable commodities, and the last thing you want is to lose some of that material through contamination and erosion. It’s not just about retaining value either: some materials have a significant and detrimental effect on the environment if left to leach into the watercourses or become airborne, so every effort needs to be made to reduce the amount of waste, maximise the efficiency of production and care for the environment we live in

Protect your materials against the elements

Natural factors such as the weather can easily affect work operations in an industrial setting. It can be difficult to protect raw materials from the damage caused by adverse weather, especially in areas that are particularly exposed to the elements.

Temporary shelters can provide that much-needed protection but they need to be completely weatherproof to protect from wind, rain, snow, and even UV damage. This can help make sure your materials remain safe and in the best possible condition when you need them.

Get the flexibility to suit your needs

Temporary fabric shelters, like Zappshelters, require virtually no groundworks and, perhaps most importantly can be added to, relocated elsewhere, or dismantled for future use.

This flexibility means that you can grow and develop the storage capacity of your raw materials in direct response to your requirements.

Protect Your Raw Materials With Temporary Storage

Temporary storage shelters offer a number of benefits when it comes to storing your raw materials, including maintaining the quality of your supply, protecting them from the elements, and providing storage flexibility. All of these factors ultimately help you maximise storage and increase profitability.
