Streamline Your Seafood Cold Chain with Integrated Import and Export Services

When it comes to seafood production and distribution, protecting freshness and cold chain integrity with a dedicated cold storage partner is paramount. Whether it's succulent shrimp, delicate salmon fillets, a seasonal catch, or fresh lobster tails, ensuring your seafood reaches consumers in top condition requires meticulous attention to precise temperature control throughout your chain. 

Fully integrated temperature-controlled import and export support can make the difference – offering an unbroken supply chain for producers and distributors striving to deliver the finest quality seafood to your discerning markets worldwide. Even slight temperature changes can accelerate the deterioration of seafood products, leading to loss of flavor, texture, and nutritional value – and ultimately your bottom line.

At Americold, we do better to help our customers feed the world.

With a vast global presence and more than 120 years of experience, Americold has the knowledge and resources to solve your most complex seafood supply chain challenges. We know exactly how to optimize your cold chain to protect and preserve your products and your profits.

For Importers.
From the moment your product arrives at the port, we treat it like it’s our own. We want to transition your seafood safely and efficiently through each stage of the temperature-controlled supply chain and deliver it to its final destination in perfect condition. We can meet your ocean containers, help navigate customs, and transport those containers to conveniently located port-adjacent Americold facilities. We quickly unload and return containers to the port to avoid demurrage. In-house, we continue to efficiently prep and/or route your product according to your ultimate destination. End-to-end, your supply chain's temperature integrity remains unbroken.  

For Exporters.
Your domestically raised or prepared seafood products can leverage similar supply chain services in reverse. Deliver your fresh or frozen product to the closest Americold facility, or we can collect it from your point of production. We safely and efficiently move your product to one of our port-adjacent facilities, complete any required labeling, packing, and repacking, support you with preparing any regulatory paperwork, load it into ocean containers, and dray it to the port ready for the steamship line.


Our facilities can coordinate any necessary regulatory requirements and incorporate international services, including:

  • USDA inspections
  • Export certifications
  • Import inspections
  • Export handlings
  • Customs bonded locations
  • CBP CES exam points
  • Drayage in heavyweight corridors
