Working together with the Cold Chain Federation

 The Cold Chain Federation acquired Commercial Transport Publishing, owner of industry magazine titles Cold Chain News and website Global Cold Chain News in 2021.

As the long-standing trade association for businesses that operate temperature-controlled storage and distribution operations in the UK, the Cold Chan Federation represents some 250 companies that operate more the 500 warehouses (40m cubic metres) and over 50,000 refrigerated vehicles.

Regarding the alliance of the two organisations, Shane Brennan, chief executive, Cold Chain Federation, said: “We are delighted to have made this acquisition. Over the past three years we have been on a journey to transform our organisation so as to ensure it has an impactful voice on the major issues; brings professionals together to learn and problem-solve; and invests in the advice and research that benefits the whole UK cold chain.

“The Cold Chain Federation is owned by its members. The income we generate is reinvested in our industry and we have decided to invest in Cold Chain News because it will help us grow our community and showcase our activities.

“This acquisition will also present opportunities to grow the value of our organisation as a unique, specialist, marketing channel for current and future suppliers of equipment and services to the UK cold chain. We look forward to exploring and developing these ideas in coming months.”

Day-to-day management of Cold Chain News and Global Cold Chain News continues to be delivered by publishing manager, Tina Massey; editorial continues to be run by Dean Stiles and Sally Nash; for issues to do with Cold Chain Federation activities, events and membership activities contact membership director, Sharon Mughal.
