About GCCA Transportation

GCCA Transportation supports the needs and interests of organizations involved in the transportation sector of the cold chain. The GCCA Transportation sector:

  • Fosters good commercial and trade relations between transportation companies, their suppliers, and customers;
  • Gathers and disseminates data and information to members;
  • Protects the interests of its members from unlawful and unjust measures and practices.

Founded in 1994 as the International Refrigerated Transportation Association (IRTA), GCCA Transportation members found it necessary to establish an organization dedicated to meeting a growing demand in the transportation industry. Prior to that time, no single association existed wherein refrigerated transportation companies would have the opportunity to exchange valuable information, ideas, and insights.
