Lineage Logistics, an innovative provider of temperature-controlled logistics solutions, today announced plans to expand operations in Charleston County. The $34 million investment will create 36 new jobs.
“Charleston has it all – first-rate infrastructure, great access, a top ranked port and a skilled workforce,” said Greg Lehmkuhl, Lineage Logistics, president and CEO. “South Carolina’s numerous business advantages, in addition to the booming market, have helped Lineage to better service our export and import customers, as well as our domestic shipping partners. We are thrilled to expand our existing operations in what we believe is the right location at the right time.”
Founded in 2008, Lineage Logistics is one of the world’s largest refrigerated warehousing companies with more than 300 facilities in North America, South America, Europe, Asia, Australia and New Zealand. The family-owned business specializes in increasing the efficiency and protecting the integrity of temperature-controlled supply chains worldwide.
“We work hard to bring new companies to our state, but it’s particularly exciting to see one of South Carolina’s existing businesses grow,” said South Carolina Governor Henry McMaster. “We celebrate Lineage Logistics’ decision to invest $34 million and create 36 new jobs in Charleston County.”
Located at 7748 Palmetto Commerce Parkway in North Charleston, Lineage Logistics’ expansion will enable the company to increase capacity to satisfy growing customer need.
