Lineage Logistics breaks ground on Sunnyvale site expansion project in Texas

LBR Staff Writer Published 13 April 2018

Lineage Logistics, a provider of temperature-controlled supply chain solutions, has broken ground on Sunnyvale site expansion project in Texas, US.

The expansion will help Lineage to double the pallet capacity of the current warehousing and distribution facility in the Dallas-Fort Worth logistics market.

The expansion will add around 94,000ft² of space to the existing 311,885ft² facility. It will allow to accommodate up to 24,000 additional pallet positions.

Expected to be operational in 2019, the expanded facility will create around 30 new jobs in the region.

Sunnyvale facility will become the firm’s first fully automated development in North America. Lineage will implement dynamic profiling process at the facility, helping to meet a wide range of customer requirements.

The automated storage and retrieval systems technology at the facility will move product through a nine-level and 100ft ceiling location, enabling to increase storage density and reduce energy consumption.

Lineage Logistics president and CEO Greg Lehmkuhl said: “At Lineage, we are committed to disrupting the temperature-controlled supply chain through the use of new technology, applied sciences, and innovative thinking.

“Our expansion in Sunnyvale is another tremendous example of that commitment, and we are thrilled to deploy a number of dynamic technologies to help preserve, protect and optimize the distribution of the food products our customers entrust to us.

“I would like to thank our partners within the City of Sunnyvale for their significant support in bringing this project to life.”

In November 2017, Lineage Logistics purchased eight temperature-controlled warehouses from the U.S. Growers Cold Storage (Growers) for an undisclosed sum.

The acquired portfolio allowed Lineage to expand its facility network in Southern California and offer more value-added solutions to the customers.

Growers’s eight warehouses include more than 12 million cubic ft of capacity in the Los Angeles area, and offers easy access to Southern California’s major freeways, rail facilities and ocean container terminals.
