A new headquarters in Madrid highlights Lineage’s continued investment in the region and lays the foundation for growth.
Additionally, the increased focus in Southern Europe creates stronger connections to Lineage Logistics’ network of hubs in Northern Europe and beyond.
The new offices build on Lineage’s expanding footprint in the region, including the acquisition in September 2022 of Grupo Fuentes, one of Spain’s principal transport and cold storage logistics providers.
Lineage’s recent investments in freight forwarding and transport fleets, along with recently launched services focused on fresh produce, will help to connect Europe’s food supply chain more efficiently and will give customers a one-stop-shop solution when moving their products from Southern to Northern Europe and beyond.

“Spain is the door to Southern Europe and one of Europe’s main markets for fresh produce,” said Lineage Logistics Regional Vice President – Southern Europe, Raul Fores Valles.
“Lineage has chosen to invest in our presence here to better meet the needs of our customers in Europe and worldwide.
“Our new offices in Madrid will help us to leverage our recent investments in transport and freight forwarding services to more efficiently connect customers to the world.”
Lineage first entered the European market in 2017 and now has a strong European network of over 70 cold chain facilities in 11 countries, including six facilities in Spain, two in Italy and three in France.
The company has made significant investments in its Southern European footprint and transport fleet, connecting customers to hubs in Northern Europe and beyond. Lineage first entered Spain in May 2021, with the acquisition of warehouses in Navarra and Asturias from Frigoríficos de Navarra and Frioastur.
Last year, Lineage Logistics has announced a new strategic service to provide fresh storage options for major importers, grocers and producers of fresh fruit and produce.
