Lineage absorbs MTC Logistics

March 21, 2022
The acquisition of the cold-chain provider expands the company’s access to U.S. East and Gulf Coasts, and adds nearly 38 million cubic feet of temperature-controlled capacity.

Lineage Logistics recently acquired MTC Logistics, a cold-chain provider with four locations on or near the ports of Baltimore, Md., Wilmington, Del., and Mobile, Ala.

Financial terms of the transactions were not disclosed.

Through the acquisition of these four facilities, Lineage says it will add nearly 38 million cubic feet of capacity and more than 113,000 pallet positions in the United States. These facilities will add to Lineage’s existing footprint of more than 400 strategically located facilities totaling more than 2 billion cubic feet of capacity across 19 countries.

“MTC Logistics’ strong presence at key ports along the U.S. East and Gulf Coasts, and focus on best-in-class service and innovation, will help better connect our customers to the global food supply chain,” said Greg Lehmkuhl, president and CEO of Lineage. “We look forward to welcoming the MTC team into the ‘One Lineage’ family and leveraging their expertise to fulfill our vision of becoming the world’s most dynamic temperature-controlled logistics company.”

MTC was a wholly owned subsidiary of Hoffberger Holdings, a diversified privately held investment company of the Hoffberger family of Baltimore. A fifth-generation family business and recognized as one of the International Association of Refrigerated Warehouses (IARW) North American Top 25, MTC provides warehousing services that include blast freezing, import/export services, case selection, transportation/port drayage, and storage between -20 and 40 degrees F.

“As part of MTC’s nearly century-long commitment to the refrigerated and frozen warehousing and transportation industry, we have always sought opportunities to be a warm, responsive and dedicated partner to our customers,” said Harry Halpert, chairman of MTC and CEO of Hoffberger. “Our customers and associates will benefit from Lineage’s scale and industry-leading technology, and we are fortunate to find a strong partner who shares our values and customer-centric approach.”
