Port Jersey Logistics sees benefits from using InsulWall

Port Jersey Logistics, a growing third-party logistics (3PL) provider based in New Jersey, faced an interesting challenge: how to create a cost-effective, temperature-controlled room to store olive oil without using permanent walls.

Port Jersey Logistics, a growing third-party logistics (3PL) provider based in New Jersey, faced an interesting challenge.
Due the temperature fluctuations during transit, olive oil changes color after it arrives from Italy. In order for the olive oil to regain its natural color, it is heated at 80° F for a period of 24–48 hours. The challenge for Port Jersey Logistics was how to create a cost-effective, temperature-controlled room to store olive oil without using permanent walls.
“We were initially using an industrial vinyl wall to partition the space,” said Galo Panchi, facilities manager for Port Jersey Logistics. “Our heating expenses were through the roof. InsulWall was evaluated as a flexible, modular insulated wall solution as an alternative to a permanent wall.”
Port Jersey Logistics is a foodgrade, AIB-approved and organic-certified (as well as FDA-registered) full-service 3PL.  It serves the food, beverage, and personal care products market. Temperature- and humidity-controlled space is a growing trend for these businesses. The challenge for 3PLs like Port Jersey Logistics is to provide temperature- and humidity-controlled areas while retaining the ability to move or expand walls as clients’ needs change.
The company used InsulWall from Randall Mfg to create a heated room for olive oil (as well as additional cooler rooms) at its new 700,000-square-foot foodgrade public warehousing space. InsulWall’s “green” interior insulation sandwiched between tough, exterior vinyl forms a flexible, insulated wall solution that easily creates temperature- and humidity-controlled rooms. By not building a permanent wall, Port Jersey Logistics maintained the ability to reconfigure its warehouse space without costly wall removal and construction.
Based on the savings realized in energy costs, InsulWall paid for itself in one year.

Randall has been providing flexible wall solutions to warehouses, distribution centers, and workplaces for more than 15 years. It says it was the first modular wall manufacturer to use recycled materials to meet the need for green building materials (and that contribute to LEED scores). The firm’s product offerings include the insulated, modular curtain wall  InsulWall; warehouse divider curtains–Randall Industrial Curtain Walls; and insulated pallet covers.
