Alexandria, Virginia, July 6, 2016 – The International Association of Refrigerated Warehouses (IARW) has released its annual Global Top 25 List of the largest temperature-controlled warehousing and logistics providers in the world. Accompanying the Global Top 25 is the IARW North American Top 25 List. IARW has also compiled a list of the largest operators in Latin America and the Caribbean and Europe, reflecting the strength of the cold chain in both regions. The lists are determined by total capacity of temperature-controlled space.

Companies worldwide reported increased capacity and several new companies joined IARW in the past year. As a result, the combined space of IARW total membership is significantly higher.

IARW members currently own or operate 4.96 billion cubic feet (140.50) million cubic meters) – a 4.88% increase from May 2015 when the lists were last published.

The Global Top 25 currently operates 3.86 billion cubic feet (109.57 million cubic meters) – an 8.13% increase from 2015. The North American Top 25 operates 3.03 billion cubic feet (86.01 million cubic meters) – an 8.15% increase from 2015. The European Top 10 operates 568.72 million cubic feet (16.1 million cubic meters). The Latin American Top 20 operates 249.3 million cubic feet (7.05 million cubic meters).

“The increase in capacity reflects continued consolidation and growth of the global cold chain industry,” said IARW President & CEO Corey Rosenbusch. “As our members expand into non-traditional sectors such as fresh and customized supply chain services, capacity will steadily increase.”

IARW represents over 1,190 temperature-controlled facilities across 60 countries. IARW warehouse members offer a range of logistics solutions, including storage, transportation, processing, blast freezing, exports, and more. A complete listing of all IARW warehouse members can be found in the Global Cold Chain Directory, which is available for free online or as a mobile app. For more information, visit www.gcca.org/directory.

Eastern Propak in final approval stages for 65,000-square-foot expansion

Construction July 7, 2016

Glassboro, NJ-based Eastern Propak LLC is in its final approval stages for its 65,000-square-foot facility expansion, which will house cold storage, repacking operations and administrative offices.

In late June, General Manager Jeff Danner told The Produce News the building plans have been approved.

“’We’re in the final processes of assignment, permits and other red tape, which will take a few months” said Danner. “The building process will take seven to nine months, and we’re hoping to have it finished in time for the next Chilean season.”

The expansion is needed. Danner said the company stored as much product off site as it did on site in the past year. It recently added a new citrus bagging line, bringing it to four lines, and it’s already looking at a fifth. The expansion will more than double its storage capacity.

“Our current building is 100,000 square feet,” said Danner. “It will house an office complex and additional repack space.”

The new building will be connected to its existing facility via a 75-foot tunnel, where a new break and locker room for employees will be built.

July 06, 2016: Imperial Logistics has invested in a new, multimillion, state-of-the art warehousing and additional office space at its Centurion head office.

As a result of the expansion, which will enable Imperial’s Pharmed pharmaceutical wholesale and distribution business to move into the Centurion facility, clients will reap the benefits of a refined and cost effective ‘over the fence’ supply chain solution, Haigh explains.

She reveals that Pharmed, which specialises in the wholesale supply and distribution of healthcare related products will be moving in as of June 2018.

“The move will result in efficiency gains for both business units,” Haigh states.
