GCCA recently released its first Brazilian Productivity & Benchmarking Report (PBR). The PBR served as a pilot survey for the Brazilian market with data representing 29 facilities from 5 participating companies.

The report revealed that the average age of warehouses in 2019 is 15 years old, and 45% of them are less than 10 years old. The median size of warehouses are 70,182 cubic meters and the 79% of the participating facilities use ammonia only refrigerant technology.
