Cold Connection

Updated Warehouse Cost Index Available

The Cold Chain Index is a customizable rate builder template that warehouse members can use to provide justification to their customers during rate negotiations. The index tracks the growth rates of costs using sources of economic data along with actual expense classes from the IARW Productivity and Benchmarking tool.  The CCI is customized to the region and state where a warehouse facility operates and includes five classes of expenses: 

  • labor,
  • electric power,
  • supplies,
  • repairs and
  • rent.

The Index has been updated for third quarter 2019. GCCA members may access a customizable template here.  Are interested in membership? Learn more.
