FAQ

How many sites does Americold have?

Americold’s network is continually growing – for the latest information on our network size, please check our facilities page here.

What types of automation does Americold use?

Americold strives to deploy only the most appropriate types and amounts of automation given the circumstances – we don’t automate for automation’s sake. Because of this philosophy, we have a number of different technologies in use today and in our plans for the future. Semi-automated systems, such as pallet shuttles operating in deep storage racking and forklift-attached layer pickers, are used in addition to highly automated systems such as pallet load Automatic Storage and Retrieval Systems, robotic layer pickers, pallet mono-rails, and case buffer/sequencing technologies with robotic palletization. All are designed to the specifications we require and, of course, to operate in our temperature-controlled environments.

What are the benefits of operating as a real estate investment trust (REIT)?

A company that qualifies as a REIT generally is permitted to deduct dividends paid to stockholders from its taxable income, which reduces the amount of federal corporate-level tax the REIT is required to pay. As a result, and to comply with certain distribution requirements applicable to REITs, most REITs distribute at least 100% of their taxable income to stockholders and, therefore, do not pay federal corporate-level taxes in most circumstances. Most states follow this federal tax treatment and allow REITs to deduct dividends paid to stockholders from their taxable income for state tax purposes. Certain REIT subsidiaries, however, are fully subject to federal and state corporate-level income taxes.

Does Americold pay dividends?
