Lineage Logistics launches expansion at Port of Tacoma


Lineage Logistics, a temperature-controlled warehouse and logistics firm, has broken ground on an expansion of its cold distribution facility in Tacoma, Wash.

The expansion plan calls for the addition of 20,000 pallet positions of frozen warehouse capacity, bringing the company's total capacity in the Pacific Northwest to more than 93 million cubic feet of temperature-controlled warehouse space, company officials said in a press release.

The Tacoma facility has immediate access to the Port of Tacoma and has rail access through Union Pacific Railroad and BNSF Railway Co. switches.

The facility expansion project will add energy efficiency and automation features, as well as expanded dock capacity to accommodate cross-dock activity and intermodal rail business.

"We are confident their expansion project, combined with their significant added capacity in the region, will help support greater import/export activity through the port and the Pacific Northwest market as a whole," said Scott Francis, Port of Tacoma's director of real estate.
