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

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.

The Global Top 25 currently operates 3.33 billion cubic feet (94.26 million cubic meters), which is a 5.71% increase from 2012. The North American Top 25 currently operates 2.72 billion cubic feet (77.13 million cubic meters) – a 5.84% increase from 2012.

“We are proud of the continued growth and strength of our industry,” said IARW President Corey Rosenbusch. “All IARW warehouse members, including those companies listed on our top 25 lists, are committed to meeting the changing and expanding needs of the temperature-controlled industry.”

The combined space of IARW total membership, including the Global Top 25 and North American Top 25 members, accounts for 4.29 billion cubic feet (121.49 million cubic meters), which is a 6.45% increase in membership space since the list was last released in May 2012.

IARW has members in 65 nations. The Global Top 25 list includes PRW companies with facilities in Argentina, Australia, Canada, China, Germany, Italy, Japan, Mexico, New Zealand, the Netherlands, Poland, Sri Lanka, Sweden, United States, and Vietnam.

A complete listing of all IARW members can be found in the 2013-2014 Global Cold Chain Directory, which is available at www.gcca.org/directory. This easy-to-use guide connects manufacturers, distributors, and retailers to an international selection of companies specializing in refrigerated warehousing and logistics.
