2020 YEAR IN REVIEW: Building and Expanding To Realize Our Vision
December 15, 2020
At Lineage, we’re committed to providing our customers with the most sophisticated infrastructure and set of resources they need to ensure they can keep up with ever-growing, ever-changing demand across diverse markets. Since 2008, we’ve grown strategically to create the world’s largest and most dynamic network of temperature-controlled logistics facilities. By annually increasing our square footage by 60%, we can now provide nearly 2 billion cubic feet of capacity across 330+ locations spanning 15 countries on five continents. This gives our customers the scale and reach they need to adjust to changing business plans, accelerating consumer trends and often volatile marketplace conditions. Even when they happen overnight.
16 new projects. One shared purpose.
Despite challenges presented by the COVID-19 pandemic, Lineage followed through on our 2020 plans to complete eight major construction projects, encompassing both expansions to current facilities and brand new buildings. We also have significant planned construction in 2021-2022, with plans to complete eight additional projects. In every warehouse, we’re implementing industry-leading technologies, including building on the world’s most advanced network of automated warehouses, to provide flexible and expansive capacity to customers while reducing environmental impact.

With increased demand for cold storage, our innovative solutions and forward-thinking ensures our customers will have the additional capacity and services they need in key markets.
We also know that each time we open new doors, it provides new opportunities for our customers and for the communities in which our Team Members live and work — which is why in the coming year, our focus remains unwavering on our purpose: to transform the food supply chain to eliminate waste and help feed the world.
