Lineage Logistics in Novi, one of the world’s largest temperature-controlled industrial REIT and logistics solutions providers, has announced Lineage Fresh, a new strategic service in Europe that provides fresh storage solutions for major importers, grocers, and producers of fresh fruit and produce.
Lineage Fresh launched last November in the U.S.
“Lineage Fresh brings state-of-the-art fresh capacity and product expertise to our expanding European network, and connects the growing fresh produce market with customers across Europe and the world,” says Edwin Wentink, vice president of business development in Europe.
“Lineage Fresh capitalizes on the investments we have made in Kloosterboer Group’s legacy of fresh product expertise and its class leading facilities in Rotterdam and Vlissingen, along with a growing footprint in southern Europe. We are excited to highlight this new solution as part of our participation in Fruit Logistica in Berlin this year.”
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 storage 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 re-pack and bagging services, reconditioning, restacking, restyling, container plugs, multi-temperature zones for produce, cold treatment, fumigation, container drayage, juice processing and blending, and the integration of customs’ bonded facilities.
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 Lineage customers’ needs, it has made significant investment in the space to meet the demands of the fresh market and to create a connected ‘fresh’ network.
