Temperature-controlled supply chain solutions provider Lineage Logistics LLC has begun construction on a key expansion to its Sunnyvale TX warehousing and distribution facility in the Dallas-Fort Worth logistics market.

Lineage will nearly double the pallet capacity of its current facility while occupying less than a third of the current footprint. Employing advanced automation and robotics warehouse technologies, this project will help establish Lineage as an innovative automated solution provider of temperature-controlled warehousing.

Greg Lehmkuhl, president and CEO of Lineage Logistics, said, “At Lineage, we are committed to disrupting the temperature-controlled supply chain through the use of new technology, applied sciences and innovative thinking. Our expansion in Sunnyvale is another tremendous example of that commitment, and we are thrilled to deploy a number of dynamic technologies to help preserve, protect and optimize the distribution of the food products our customers entrust to us.”

The facility—Lineage’s first fully automated development in North America—is designed to support maximum flexibility and responsiveness. Implementing a process called Dynamic Profiling, the firm will be able to address a wide range of customer needs in Sunnyvale over time. The facility’s Automated Storage and Retrieval Systems technology will move product seamlessly through a nine-level, 100-foot ceiling location, while the corresponding increase in storage density will reduce energy consumption.

Located at 367 Long Creek Road in Sunnyvale, the expanded facility will add about 94,000 square feet to the existing 311,885-sq-ft location and have the ability to house roughly 24,000 more pallet positions. When the facility is completed, Lineage estimates that nearly 30 new jobs will be created from the local workforce to support operations.

“I would like to thank our partners within the city of Sunnyvale for their significant support in bringing this project to life,” said Lehmkuhl. “From Mayor Phaup’s office, to the Departments of Engineering, Economic Development and others, we have had a true partner throughout the development and approval process, and they were instrumental in bringing these innovations and jobs to the local economy.”

Currently under construction, the facility is expected to begin full operation in 2019.
