Lineage Logistics opens Spanish headquarters

The new facility in Madrid will help the temperature-controlled company better connect customers in Southern and Northern Europe, and beyond.

Lineage Logistics recently opened a new Southern Europe headquarters in Madrid, Spain.

A grand-opening celebration included the temperature-controlled real estate company’s Southern Europe management team, as well as European and U.S. executive leadership, and board members from Lineage’s parent company, Bay Grove.

The new facility in Madrid is part of Lineage’s continued investment in the region, helping lay a foundation for continued growth, the company said. Additionally, an increased focus on the Southern Europe region creates stronger connections to Lineage’s network of hubs in Northern Europe and beyond.

“Spain is the door to Southern Europe and one of Europe’s main markets for fresh produce,” Raul Fores Valles, Lineage’s newly appointed regional vice president in Southern Europe, said in a news release. “Lineage has chosen to invest in our presence here to better meet the needs of our customers in Europe and worldwide. Our new offices in Madrid will help us to leverage our recent investments in transport and freight forwarding services to more efficiently connect customers to the world.”

The new offices build on Lineage’s expanding footprint in the region, including the acquisition in September 2022 of Grupo Fuentes, one of Spain’s principal transport and cold storage logistics providers. Lineage’s recent investments in freight forwarding and transport fleets, along with recently launched services focused on fresh produce, will help to connect Europe’s food supply chain more efficiently and give customers a “one-stop-shop” solution when moving their products from Southern to Northern Europe and beyond, Lineage said.

Lineage first entered the European market in 2017 and now has a European network of more than 70 cold chain facilities in 11 countries, including six facilities in Spain, two in Italy, and three in France. The company has invested in its Southern European footprint and transport fleet, connecting customers to hubs in Northern Europe and beyond.

Lineage entered Spain in May 2021 with the acquisition of warehouses in Navarra and Asturias from Frigoríficos de Navarra and Frioastur.
