Lineage Logistics buys European automated cold storage firm Partner Logistics

LBR Staff Writer Published 16 June 2017

US-based Lineage Logistics has acquired European automated cold storage company Partner Logistics for an undisclosed sum.

Based in Bergen op Zoom of Netherlands, Partner Logistics provides automated warehousing services primarily for frozen foods.

Founded in 1998, the company offers integrated supply chain solutions for clients such as Lamb Weston, Birds Eye, Pinguin and other frozen food brands.

Partner Logistics has a total capacity of about 500,000 pallets, which will help to maximize the efficiency and cost effectiveness of their customers’ supply chains.

The acquisition will add Lineage with around 101 million cubic ft of temperature-controlled capacity, which includes six advanced and fully automated warehouses and one conventional warehouse in the Netherlands, Belgium and the UK.

Partner Logistics CEO Duco Buijze said: “This transaction is a great opportunity for our company and our customers.

“We are excited to join Lineage and to increase the resources we have for growth and to expand our service offerings.”

Lineage Logistics president and CEO Greg Lehmkuhl said: “Our acquisition of Partner Logistics represents Lineage’s ongoing commitment to serving our customers’ global supply chains by delivering dynamic, sophisticated cold chain logistics solutions.”

Backed by investment firm Bay Grove, Lineage provides supply chain solutions for the food, retail and distribution brands.

With diverse warehouse networks, Lineage provides logistics solutions through value-added services such as managed transportation, customs brokerage, processing and manufacturing.

The company currently has around 100 locations with over 609 million cubic ft of temperature-controlled capacity.
