Lineage debuts Canada cross-border program

April 10, 2024
Expansion of cold storage provider’s integrated solutions services aims to deliver added transportation value for North American customers.

Lineage recently rolled out new Canada cross-border services.

The program aims to leverage the temperature-controlled warehouse provider’s facilities and network to deliver added transportation advantages for customers seeking end-to-end cold chain solutions in North America.

The cross-border network adds value for Lineage customers, including access to multiple delivery points in the Canadian market and strategically positioned transport terminals in Vancouver, Kelowna, Calgary, Edmonton, Saskatoon, Regina, Winnipeg, Toronto, Red Deer and Montreal, as well as a new terminal in Moncton that is planned to be operational later this spring, Lineage reported.

Canadian and U.S. networks will be connected by cross-border points in Hobart, Indiana, and Burien, Washington.

“Lineage is known for its world-class storage facilities, but we also understand and serve the complex transportation needs our customers face,” Chris Skraba, Lineage vice president of global business development for integrated solutions, said in a news release. “This cross-border network bolsters our ability to provide a true end-to-end solution for our warehousing and transportation customers, backed by our industry-leading focus on food safety.”

Lineage’s north and southbound cross-border program enables truckload and less-than-truckload (LTL) shipments between the U.S. and Canada, while connecting shippers to the company’s warehouses that comprise its North American LTL multi-vendor consolidation network. This connectivity provides customers with competitive pricing, a reliable transit schedule, and access to warehousing and transportation capacity on both sides of the border, Lineage said.
