ECSLA 2012 European Benchmarking Study

ECSLA is inviting European cold store operators to participate in the ECSLA 2012 European Benchmarking Study. The goal is to obtain data on operational efficiency. The collected data will be used to produce a report, which will offer participants a very effective tool to compare performance and certain cost elements with other cold storage companies and to obtain insight in cost levels by country. This country comparison can and will only be done for those countries where at least 5 cold stores have participated in the study.
Data analysis and reporting will be handled by Prof. K.J. Roodbergen and his team at the University of Groningen (Netherlands), specialized in operations management and quantitative logistics. The (general) report will NOT be published and will NOT be for sale. Confidentiality of all individual company data is guaranteed by the University of Groningen.  Participation is open to EUROPEAN public refrigerated warehouses and 3PL cold stores. The costs are: € 180 for ECSLA members and € 280 for non members.
Participants will receive their individual reports at the beginning of October. The general results will be presented by Prof. Roodbergen in a special meeting at the ECSLA Fall Conference in Madrid/Spain on October 16. Only participants in the benchmarking study will be invited for this meeting. More information is available at For questions, please contact ECSLA via +31 38 452 6511 or
