IARW publishes Top 25 refrigerated-warehouse operator listing

Washington, DC, US: 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’s North American Top 25 List. Companies on both lists reported increased capacity. The Global Top 25 currently operates 3.15 billion cubic feet (89.28 million cubic meters) – a 7% increase from 2011.

The North American Top 25 currently operates 2.57 billion cubic feet (72.82 million cubic meters) – a 2% increase from 2011.

“The growth of the Top 25 Lists reflects positive growth in the PRW industry,” said IARW president and chief executive Bill Hudson. “Our members are expanding and strengthening the cold chain around the world to meet the needs of the food industry.”

The combined space of IARW total membership, including the Global Top 25 and North American Top 25 members, accounts for 4.03 billion cubic feet (114.09 million cubic meters) – a 1.8% increase from this time last year.

IARW has members in 65 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.
