Lineage Logistics, a warehousing and logistics firm sponsored by Bay Grove Capital LLC, plans to open and operate a new 196,000-square-foot cold storage facility at the Port of Long Beach CA by mid-2014.
Baker Cold Storage, a unit of Baker Commodities Inc of Vernon CA, has acquired the property and will own the new facility and business. Lineage will manage operations at the new facility, and Controlled Environments Construction will serve as developer and general contractor.
Situated in the overweight corridor of Pier B at the Port of Long Beach, the facility will have multi-temperature and convertible freezer and cooler rooms with 27,000 pallet positions and a 60-ft refrigerated dock. It will also supply blast freezing and pre-cooling capabilities to support a range of food commodities and products. Included will be an enclosed and refrigerated 50,000-sq-ft cross-dock facility that will permit rapid movement of products for international shipping and distribution.
The property will provide access to transportation with truck, trailer, and container parking that are container-friendly and have plug-in capabilities and rail access served by Union Pacific and Burlington Northern Santa Fe. Services will include full-service freight consolidation, less-than-truckload and truckload offerings, drayage capabilities, and the ability to conduct international trade at an import/export-approved location.
Lineage is the third-largest temperature-controlled warehousing and logistics company in the United States. Access www.lineagelogistics.com for more information.
