Cold chain cross-border services

by Inside Logistics Online Staff

Lineage is now offering cross-border services.

The cross-border network offers access to multiple delivery points in the Canadian market and 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.

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

Lineage’s North and Southbound cross-border program enables both TL (truckload) and LTL (less-than-truckload) shipments between the U.S. and Canada. This connectivity provides customers with fast transit and access to warehousing and transportation capacity on both sides of the border.

“Lineage is known for its world-class storage facilities, but we also understand and serve the complex transportation needs our customers face,” said Chris Skraba, vice-president of global business development for integrated solutions at Lineage.

“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.”

Transportation costs can often be significantly greater than warehousing costs, making location and transportation capabilities key competitive factors for Lineage and its customers. Lineage operates several temperature-controlled business lines within its global integrated solutions segment, with services such as transportation capabilities built to complement customers’ warehousing needs.
