Temperature Controlled Warehousing
Our temperature controlled warehouses conforming to global standards, ensure that your products are kept in the right condition.
Keeping food products at the right temperature, prevents bacteria from growing, preserves the freshness of the products and protects consumer health. Your products taste as they should and all nutritional values are preserved. In short, if the conversation is about human health than you have no right of leaving anything to chance.
Our climate-controlled warehouses operating with 3 main temperature categories were designed to keep your products hygiene and at the right temperature. Thanks to our advanced technology, products that should be stored in different temperature ranges never end up together and are constantly audited by food engineers. Product temperatures are also under control all the time with our real-time tracking technologies.
We have more than 130.000 m² storage space in our temperature-controlled facilities that are located in 21 cities in Turkey. We are proud to provide a warehousing infrastructure that serves 1.200 customers and reaches anywhere within 24 hours.
We house thousands of products of locally and globally known brands.

- 1 Roof Panels
PolarXP uses fire-resistant and well-known Kingspan Panels on all its warehouses.
- 2 Wall Panels
Kingspan insulated panels contain special polyurethane resistant to fire and consist of two sheet surfaces covering the intermediate layer.
- 3 Below Ground Isolation
We implement the ground isolation by 5 cm thick foam boards, to ensure the consistency of temperature levels in the warehouse.
- 4 Warehouse Flooring
The grounding of our warehouses are done by using 20 cm thick C30 cement between double layered 11 mm steel crossings.
- 5 Dual Ramp Corridor for Humidity Control
We create 10 m. receiving areas to ensure the temperature easing in to the warehouse. By separating the receiving and shipping area from the actual warehousing area, we control the humidity better.
- 6 Chiller Units
Chiller units are implemented outside of the facility.
- 7 Ventilation Systems
PolarXP uses a combined cooling and humidity control system.
- 8 Receiving and Docking Stations
Hydraulic loading lifts are installed into pits with air sealing so that forklifts are able to drive directly into vehicles.
- 9 Temperature Management Stations
The warehouse temperature levels are managed and controlled by a central management system. Operating on a 24/7 automated alarm system, the mechanism triggers an alarm in case of a malfunction, notifying identified people and offices via SMS or a phone call.
- 10 Temperature Control Units
We have around 64 temperature and humidity control devices across the warehouse.
- 11 Fire Sprinklers
Our warehouses have a ceiling fire sprinkler system installed to assure the prevention of fire. Laser beam smoke detectors triggers the activation of this system.
- 12 Cold Chambers
Cold chambers are separated by 20 cm thick panels for better isolation, leading to a stronger cooling system.
- 13 Electric Forklift Charge Areas
Forklift charge areas are positioned in a dedicated area, away from our customer’s goods. Surrounded by a brick wall, this room has a separate air ventilation system as well as a carbon fire sprinkler system.
- 14 Back-up Generators
There are 3 x 750 kWh generator sets available to assure the maintainability of our warehouses.. Also, there is a 2 ton tank unit, 50 m. away from our warehouses to fuel these gen sets in case of a longer failure.
Hundreds of thousands of SKUs, 21 warehouses, 3 temperature categories and tens of thousands of orders per day.
