Hanson Represented at the Global Cold Chain Expo

Home > Cold Chain > Hanson Represented at the Global Cold Chain Expo

 This past week, from June 20-22, the Global Cold Chain  Alliance (GCCA) hosted the inaugural Global Cold Chain  Expo at McCormick Place in Chicago. Hanson Logistics  was able to be present during the length of the expo, not  only representing at the conference but also hosting a tour  for attendees at the Chicago Consolidation Center.

The Global Cold Chain Expo has grown considerably since  past International Association of Refrigerated Warehouses  (IARW) conferences. In previous years, the expo held only 100 exhibitors in a 12,000 sq. ft. space. This year noted a considerable jump to 165 exhibitors with 28,000 sq. ft. of presentation space. The over 14,000 attendees included World Food Logistics Organization (WFLO) participants, IARW warehouse members, and 1,200 more registered participants.

Hanson Logistics hosted a booth to discuss with attendees the responsibility of maintaining food safety while distributing throughout North America. We also brought one of our state of the art trucks parked squarely in the center display for all to climb aboard.

During one day of the Global Cold Chain Expo, we also had the privilege of hosting several Global Cold Chain Alliance (GCCA) members and expo attendees at our Chicago Consolidation Center in Hobart, Indiana. Equipped with full service Hanson capabilities, this facility anchors our Velocities Multi-Vendor consolidation program, and is strategically located east of Chicago congestion.

Our Consolidation Center also grants newer modes of efficiency and quality in shipments. “Everyone that we’ve run across: customers, potential customers, carriers; they love our location. Can’t believe that no one ever located in that northwest Indiana corridor,” notes Andrew Janson, Hanson Logistics President. The centralized spot helps service both west and east of the Mississippi River while reducing stress for truckers who normally spend their time in excessive traffic.

Offering a tour of our Chicago Consolidation Center gave global cold chain partners the venue to connect and network in the constant pursuit of excellence.
