Temperature-controlled warehousing and logistics company Lineage Logistics LLC has formed a strategic partnership with BluJay Solutions, formerly Kewill, a provider of transportation management solutions.
The partnership designates Lineage as the exclusive third-party logistics provider to manage customers’ food and beverage supply chains using BluJay’s Transportation Management solution, formerly LeanTMS, powered by its Global Trade Network.
This partnership enables customers in the food and beverage industry to outsource management of their transportation network by leveraging BluJay’s highly scalable TMS with Lineage’s network of facilities that spans more than 100 locations across North America with 609 million cubic feet of temperature-controlled capacity. Lineage will also work to transition all of its customers from existing transportation platforms to BluJay’s Transportation Management solution.
“Never before has a customer had the opportunity to leverage one of the nation’s largest facility networks with leading technology and a $12 billion transportation spend to maximize performance and realize dramatic cost savings,” said Greg Lehmkuhl, president and CEO of Lineage Logistics. “We are thrilled to partner with BluJay and create more integrated supply chain solutions for our customers through our expanded managed transportation capability. Our customers gain a strategic advantage through the unique level of supply chain intelligence only offered by our expanded ecosystem.”
“Combining our world-class TMS platform with the execution capability of the world’s fastest-growing, most dynamic cold chain logistics organization brings an unprecedented service offering to the marketplace,” said Doug Braun, CEO of BluJay Solutions. “The strategic partnership between Lineage and BluJay is an exciting evolution for both of our organizations, and we look forward to delivering more innovative, collaborative supply chain solutions to customers worldwide.”
