WASHINGTON, DC, May 20, 2010 – The Global Cold Chain Alliance (GCCA) has published the 2010 Global Cold Chain Directory. The publication is used by more than 3,000 key cold chain professionals around the world, including members of several international food industry associations and all members of the National Frozen and Refrigerated Foods Association (NFRA).

The Directory includes more than 500 pages of listings of cold chain providers from 67 countries around the world. These providers are members of the Core Partners of GCCA, which represent all major industries engaged in temperature-controlled logistics. Providers are listed within the following sections:

  • Warehouses – International Association of Refrigerated Warehouses (IARW)

  • Key government officials and the cold chain and food industry trade press also receive the Directory.

Within the six color-coded sections in the Directory, food manufacturers, distributors, and retailers will find an international selection of cold storage warehouses, refrigerated transportation companies, cold storage design experts and companies charged with providing support services to the cold chain industry. It also includes a detailed index that makes it easy to find any company or association. This year’s Directory also features an extended section on the newest GCCA Core Partner, the International Institute of Ammonia Refrigeration.

“To succeed in these tough economic times, you need to have a resource at your fingertips that you can use to quickly find customers, partners, suppliers, and other organizations,” says GCCA President and CEO Bill Hudson. “This comprehensive directory is a roadmap for the entire global cold chain industry.”

The Directory is recognized for its excellence not only within the cold chain industry, but also in the world of trade and professional associations.

The 2008 edition also won a Gold award from Association Trends, a trade publication that covers the association profession.
