The International Association of Refrigerated Warehouses (IARW) has released its annual IARW Global Top 25 List of the public refrigerated warehouses (PRWs) with the greatest capacity of warehouse space in the world.

Accompanying the Global Top 25 is the IARW North American Top 25 List.

Overall, companies worldwide reported increased capacity. The Global Top 25 currently operates 3.36 billion cubic feet (95.20 million cubic meters) – a 4% increase from 2013. The combined space of IARW total membership, including the Global Top 25 and North American Top 25 members, accounts for 4.39 billion cubic feet (124.29 million cubic meters) – a 2% increase from this time last year.

“The changes to the Top 25 Lists reflect positive growth, as well as increasing consolidation in the PRW industry,” said IARW president and CEO Corey Rosenbusch. “Our members are strengthening the cold chain around the world to meet the needs of the food industry. This global expansion also underscores our strategic priority to grow the reach of our association internationally.”

IARW has members in 66 countries around the world. The Global Top 25 list includes PRW companies with facilities in Argentina, Australia, Canada, China, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Mexico, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Poland, Sweden, Vietnam, and the United States of America.

A complete listing of all IARW Members can be found in the 2014-2015 Global Cold Chain Directory, which is available in print, online, and in a new mobile app available in Google Play and iTunes. This easy-to-use guide connects manufacturers, distributors and retailers to an international selection of companies specializing in refrigerated warehousing and logistics. Printed copies of the directory are also available – free of charge – to food manufacturers, retailers, food service companies, government agencies, and trade press.
