Lineage expands in the US

Temperature controlled logistics company, Lineage, has announced the expansion of its American warehousing network with a new site in Waddell, Arizona nearing completion.

The new facility is Lineage’s first entrance in the Phoenix market and, coupled with the company’s integrated solutions, will allow it to expand storage capacity and distribution capabilities across the Southwestern United States, including the  Greater Los Angeles area.

“The strategic positioning of our facility in Arizona underscores Lineage’s continued efforts to effectively serve our customers in the Southwest and beyond with end-to-end solutions that address all aspects of their supply chains,” said President, North America West, Brian Beattie. “We look forward to further deepening our customer partnerships in the area and addressing the crucial need for advanced cold-storage operations.”

Constructed by Cold Summit Development, the Waddell facility will span almost 16,000 sqm and include 28,000 pallet positions. Complete with 20 dock doors, double deep racking and drop trailer/container plug-ins, the facility can be converted for storing a variety of temperature-sensitive products.

In addition to cold storage, the facility will offer comprehensive and customised services including case picking, cross-docking, defrosting/tempering, temperature reduction, transloading and managed transportation. Full EDI capabilities and WMS technology will help further maximise operational efficiency and streamline cold-storage processes.

Lineage expects the new Waddell facility to begin operating in July 2024.
