From November 26 to December 2, 2023, the Global Cold Chain Alliance (GCCA) hosted a delegation from Guatemala, Honduras, and El Salvador as part of the USDA-funded ATraCSI program, implemented by IESC – Improving Economies for Stronger Communities (formerly International Executive Service Corps). The group of 20 participants visited public and private sector organizations relevant to cold chain and the trade of perishable products including U.S. Customs and Border Protection, Miami Airport, Port Everglades, Florida Freezers, Miami Agro Import, PortMiami, Emergent Cold LatAm, Lineage and Flora Logistics. The group was led by former GCCA colleagues, Richard Tracy and Debbie Corado.

The tour also included a workshop with GCCA member and partner, Lixia Capsia Gestionis (LixCap) to prepare for a joint market opportunities study that will be completed in Quarter 1 of 2024. The results of this study will be presented in a webinar during 2024 and will be focused on cold chain investment opportunities that will support the export and agricultural products. If you are interested to participate or learn more, please contact Amanda Brondy.
