Using color-coded sections, readers will find an international selection of third party warehousing and logistics providers, temperature-controlled design and construction experts, and companies that provide essential products and services to the cold chain industry. The directory also features expanded indexes listing companies by name or by service.

“The companies listed in this directory represent the highest level of quality and service in the cold chain industry,” said GCCA CEO Bill Hudson. “As members of the Global Cold Chain Alliance, these companies are committed to maintaining a strong, unbroken cold chain for their customers and consumers.”
