The Global Cold Chain Alliance and the Cold Chain Federation have entered into a formal partnership agreement that builds on a 20-plus year affiliation between the two organizations and signals a new commitment to building knowledge, networking opportunities and insights across borders.

“We are delighted to partner with Global Cold Chain Alliance in this way, giving CCF members access to an international knowledge bank, as well as opening the way for international opportunities and networking,” said Shane Brennan, CCF chief executive.

“Over three years, CCF has grown massively in its profile and impact, building a range and events and services to benefit UK cold chain professionals. By partnering with GCCA we can add their vast experience and expert resources to our membership offer. The UK is a distinctive market, and most of what concerns our members is immediate and local, but there is so much to learn from looking outside our borders too. Working with GCCA our members will have access to the best of innovation, compliance and insight from around the world.”

Matthew R. Ott, Global Cold Chain Alliance president and CEO, agreed with Brennan. “We are very excited by the opportunities that collaboration with CCF can bring to Global Cold Chain Alliance and vice versa. We are keen to support and partner with independent national organizations like CCF, and we look forward to exploring ways to build further collaborative ventures that strengthen both organisations’ offer to members in all areas of the cold chain industry.”

The CCF and GCCA partnership was announced March 25 at the European Cold Chain Conference in Rotterdam. The two organizations will be hosting a joint meeting and celebration of their renewed partnership July 14 at the Celtic Manor Resort in Newport, Wales.

Comprised of its core partners, including the International Association of Refrigerated Warehouses, the World Food Logistics Organization, the International Refrigerated Transportation Association and the Controlled Environment Building Association, the Global Cold Chain Alliance represents all major industries engaged in temperature-controlled logistics. GCCA unites all partners to be innovative leaders in the temperature-controlled products industry.
