We’ve been doing this a long time at US Cold.
Seen a lot of things change in this world.
One minute you’re pulling ice from a river, next thing you know, we’re harnessing the power of the sun to keep our clients’ goods cool.
Well change, it’s here again.
Truth is, it’s never really left.
We embrace it here.
We lead it.
Our clients’ needs have become more varied. And the world...well it’s challenge after obstacle, hold on tight and buckle up.
So we created a sub-zero system that’s advanced as it is flexible.
It’s a frozen product haven with new levels of safety, that brings value to our partners, and opportunity to our people.
A new standard that goes beyond conventional thinking.
Big bold ideas that foster growth across our company so that we can serve more people, more efficiently.
We’re developing our people with the tools and mindset to stay ahead of the curve.
And continue to help our communities prosper.
And it’s really happening.
Through our logistics, where consolidation is a concerto.
And data science is doing great things.
Our commitment to automation is paying dividends, too. Lowering overall costs, while improving safety and accuracy.
And our digitization is breaking new ground.
Using AI, machine learning, and predictive tools to raise business intelligence and redefine industry innovation.
This is our time. This moment. This change that’s changing everything for the better.
We’re leading the Coldvolution.

Digital Transformation in the Cold Chain
United States Cold Storage (USCS) is a leading name in cold storage solutions in the USA. Since 1891, we have been committed to providing reliable and cost-effective logistics solutions that support the American frozen and refrigerated food industry.
We are a pioneer in driving Coldvolution – an innovative and strategic transformation of temperature-controlled logistics, storage and distribution systems. With its custom data/AI solutions built on the low-code platform - Gramex, Gramener has enabled us to carry out data-driven, efficient, and safe warehouse operations and transportation services.
Our leadership team aspired to build data science capabilities across the organization to improve our operational efficiency. The intent was to provide reliable intelligence to every employee and enable them to deliver a great customer experience.
Using Data Science to Improve Carrier Turn Times
Built on Gramener’s flagship low-code Gramex platform, the Intelligent Appointment Scheduler (IAS) evolved US Cold’s manual scheduling process to an intuitive, data-driven, predictive platform.
Since its implementation, the IAS has completely revolutionized carrier appointment scheduling. Using predictive data, IAS recommends and schedules appointments by evaluating various historical parameters such as order complexity, the effort taken to process an order, warehouse load, and the propensity of delay at the carrier’s end.
This enables the facilities to schedule appointments in a way that the warehouse load is optimally distributed throughout the day.
IAS is also a smart system that continues to analyze all incoming data to make intelligent, predictive recommendations.
