Cool Since ‘46

Today’s VersaCold started in 1946 as B.C. Ice & Cold Storage Co., serving Vancouver’s fishing industry. In the decades that followed, the company expanded steadily east. By the ’80s we had established a strong base in the west with 8 facilities in BC, Alberta and Washington. A series of mergers and acquisitions throughout the ’90s put VersaCold on the continental and, by 2005, global map, as the purchase of P&O Cold Storage added operations in the US, Australia, New Zealand and Argentina.

In 2010, we sold our offshore operations and returned to our Canadian roots, using our global knowledge and experience to help our North American clients navigate and improve their increasingly complex supply chains. Today VersaCold operates the largest temperature sensitive logistics network in Canada, with 31 temperature controlled warehouses and distribution centres and a fleet of trucks providing local, regional, national and international transportation across Canada and the United States.
