Nov. 29, 2023
The addition of 30% more capacity at Lineage’s Calgary, Alberta, facility will grow the Foothills location’s cold storage space to 200,000 sq. ft. and 24,000 pallet positions.

Lineage Logistics recently broke ground on an expansion of its Foothills facility in Calgary, Alberta, Canada intended to help it better serve a growing market.

The strategically located facility will assist customers who export meat and other products to Asia and other markets around the world, Lineage reported.

The expansion, which will add 30% more capacity, is expected to include 1,500 pallet positions for blast freezing, a critical feature for the export of products like protein. Additionally, the Foothills site is expected to feature expanded dock space and doors, and offer closer proximity to Lineage’s local transportation hub, as well as intermodal rail facilities for efficient movement of containers to and from major Western ports.

“As we continue to expand our presence in Canada, the Calgary market serves as a critical location to meet the demand of existing customers and welcome new customers in need of export capability,” Ken MacLean, Lineage regional vice president in Canada, said in a news release. “As a leading logistics solutions provider, Lineage is excited to break ground on expanding the Foothills facility to better service the needs of the market once completed.”

Following the completion of the expansion, the Foothills facility will span approximately 200,000 sq. ft. and hold over 24,000 pallets. The expansion is expected to bring Lineage’s total Alberta capacity to over 75,000 pallet positions.
