TCS’ GCCA recognition demonstrates a culture of energy excellence at Ontario facility
QUINTE WEST, ON AND RALEIGH, NC – Apr. 26, 2023 – With help from Ndustrial, the leading energy management solutions provider in the cold chain, Trenton Cold Storage has achieved Gold Level status under the Global Cold Chain Alliance (GCCA) Energy Excellence Recognition Program.
Trenton Cold Storage (TCS) is a leading temperature-controlled warehousing and logistics company. Their achievement recognizes the culture of energy excellence at their Quinte West facility, with the goal of expanding to additional facilities in the area to build on this significant milestone in the industry.
“All of us at TCS are inspired by our teammates’ commitment and focus to reducing our environmental impact,” says Eben James Jr., CEO and President of Trenton Cold Storage. “Our teammates drive our mission of building sustainable supply chain and infrastructure solutions, to deliver superior quality products and services globally. I am grateful each day to work with such a motivated, caring and forward-thinking group of people.”
The GCCA Energy Excellence Recognition Program awards temperature-controlled warehouse operators for outstanding energy management efforts, with Gold Level being the second highest level of recognition. The highest is Platinum, which is achieved after 3 years of consecutive Gold Level status.
“GCCA is excited to welcome Trenton Cold Storage into the Energy Excellence program,” states Matt Ott, President & CEO for the Global Cold Chain Alliance (GCCA). “With energy being a significant expense category for controlled environment warehouses it is important to recognize members exhibiting their dedication to energy efficient warehouse operations within the cold chain. Also, the Energy Excellence designation affords members the ability to communicate their facility’s progress in meeting sustainability objectives to their customers.”
Ndustrial, creator of the Nsight™ Energy Intensity Platform helped TCS achieve Gold Level status by analyzing two years of electricity usage data and helping create a culture of energy intelligence. Energy costs are a high priority for temperature-controlled 3PL operators, so managing electricity usage can have substantial impacts not only on carbon emissions, but on companies’ bottom line.
“We’re really proud to have worked with TCS on this,” says Charles Tuck, Co-Founder and VP of Energy and IoT Solutions at Ndustrial. “They have shown an amazing appetite for tackling energy usage, and we’re very excited to continue working with them to certify more facilities.”
