Lineage Logistics announces Lineage Fresh, expands fresh produce offering in the US

Lineage Logistics, LLC has announced Lineage Fresh, a new strategic service providing fresh storage options for major importers, grocers, and producers of fresh fruit and produce.

Lineage Fresh will allow products with a short shelf-life to face fewer obstacles, less risk, and less spoilage with Lineage’s cold storage technology and leading logistics network. Leveraging the Company’s expertise as a global temperature-controlled provider, Lineage Fresh is designed to cater to businesses in which food safety is critical, and speed to market is essential. The new value-added services and specialized capabilities of Lineage Fresh include repacking & bagging services, reconditioning, restacking, restyling, container plugs, multi-temperature zones for produce, cold treatment, fumigation, container drayage, and the integration of customs bonded facilities.

“With the launch of Lineage Fresh, we are excited to expand our reach in the fresh produce market, adding dedicated fresh capacity and product expertise to the market, ultimately helping customers capitalize on this growing opportunity,” said Jim Henderson, Vice President of Business Development. “This offering will leverage our strategic acquisitions of Sun Valley Cold Storage and Kloosterboer, which bring state-of-the-art assets and years of experience to the organization, as well as our new port facility in Savannah, Ga., to build a more efficient end-to-end supply chain while addressing capacity concerns that have previously impacted the market.”

Fresh produce importers, exporters, and the international fresh fruit and vegetable community at large have been experiencing significant service and capacity issues with their fresh products. To address their needs, Lineage has made a significant investment in the space to meet the demands of the fresh market:

Over the past two years, Lineage has focused on value-added services needed to handle fresh fruits and vegetables, namely fresh food storage, repacking, bagging, and transportation. The Company started this venture in June 2021 with the acquisition of Kloosterboer Group, which continues to bring a large, long-standing fresh operation to the Lineage network, with fresh facilities in both Rotterdam and Flushing.
