Frequently asked questions

Is there a weight limit or requirement for Americold’s boxing services?

We’re able to box typically-sized protein cuts of pork, beef, poultry, and other traditional proteins that come to us in combos weighing 1000-2000lbs.  Generally the combo packaging itself won’t support higher weights without becoming damaged during transportation, and should a combo arrive damaged then we must reject it.  Should you have outsized or overweight requests then simply contact us and we will find a solution.
