IBL Cold StoresIdeal Business Services Ltd are currently working with our long-standing customer IBL Cold Stores to upgrade their WACOS warehouse management system (WMS).

IBL Cold Stores provides temperature controlled storage and distribution services, primarily to the food industry, from a four-acre site at Knowsley on the outskirts of Liverpool.

The facilities at IBL comprise a 110,000 square foot temperature controlled store in which some 66,000 square feet are dedicated to cold storage, 26,000 square feet to chill storage and the balance to service areas, including enclosed loading bays. The storage areas are varied and adaptable, being divided into 13 chambers, ranging in size from 4,000 to 14,000 square feet and operating at temperatures between +10°C and
–24°C. More recently IBL have invested in blast freezing with a 260m³ blast freezer and state of the art product tempering facilities.
