About GCCA Warehouse

GCCA Warehouse is the third-party temperature-controlled warehousing industry’s association. Founded in 1891 as the International Association of Refrigerated Warehouses (IARW), today’s GCCA Warehouse was established when a number of conventional warehousemen took on the demands of storing perishable food and soon realized the increased challenge and complexity of operating temperature-controlled storage facilities.

Today, the GCCA Warehouse sector promotes best practices in the temperature-controlled warehousing and logistics industry through research, industry benchmarking, networking, and education. GCCA Warehouse also advocates for members in legislative and regulatory arenas. All active members of GCCA are also members and beneficiaries of the work of the Global Cold Chain Foundation.
