This directory is a compilation of public refrigerated warehouses (PRW) throughout North America that offer or arrange some type of transportation service. Such services can enable a fleet to expand its area of operation without the capital investment of adding assets and personnel.

In addition to providing temperature-controlled storage space and transportation services, PRWs (also referred to as public cold storage facilities) are offering a host of supplemental services. These include inventory control, load consolidation, cross-docking, blast freezing, and pallet exchange.

The accompanying Service Key contains a list of the ancillary services. Covered in this directory are public cold storage facilities within the US and Canada. Listings are organized alphabetically by state/province then by city.

Basic information about each facility is included. We solicit updates from each facility annually, but we suggest contacting a company directly to verify location and services, in case there have been changes in the interim.

The basic listings in this directory are free of charge. If you have changes to your listing or want to submit a new one, please let us know by e-mailing For information on advertising in this section, please contact Ray Anderson at (800) 880-0368 or 713-523-8124.
