Novi-based Lineage Logistics, the world’s largest temperature controlled industrial real estate investment trust and logistics provider, has launched Lineage Link, a platform designed to streamline supply chain operations.
Lineage partnered with California’s Turvo, a provider of logistics software designed for global supply chains, to launch the new solution, which is designed to connect the Lineage network. The platform gives customers insight and control, providing visibility across locations, orders, inventories, transportation, and warehouse appointment scheduling.
The solution was expected to be deployed at more than 200 facilities by 2021 and ultimately across the majority of Lineage’s global network of more than 300 facilities in 15 countries spanning North America, South America, Europe, Asia, Australia, and New Zealand.
“Our partnership with Turvo, which has enabled our rollout of Lineage Link, provides our customers with a transformative logistics solution to engage, manage, and optimize their end-to-end supply chain,” says Sudarsan Thattai, chief information officer at Lineage.
The technology allows warehouses across Lineage’s network to share assets, such as customer service personnel, across warehouse management systems and forms a foundation that can gather data into a single repository before distributing it across multiple applications.
“We are working with Lineage to eliminate barriers in the supply chain created by antiquated, siloed technology,” says Scott Lang, chairman and CEO of Turvo. “Our continued innovation will further digitize the Lineage network.”
