Lineage Logistics Expands Port-Centric Facility Footprint in Savannah, Georgia
Lineage Logistics, LLC (“Lineage” or the “Company”), the world’s largest and most innovative temperature-controlled industrial REIT and logistics solutions provider, today announced the strategic expansion of its facility network near the major port in Savannah, Georgia.
“It’s a pleasure to see Lineage Logistics continue to invest in Georgia,” said Governor Brian P. Kemp. “Hardworking Georgians and our top-notch training programs like Georgia Quick Start continue to give companies the confidence they need to expand by showing them that Georgia’s workforce is not only skilled, but up to the task.”
“Savannah is the fastest growing port and largest single container terminal in North America. Lineage’s new facilities in this high-demand location will provide additional capacity and value-added services in a critical market for our customers,” said Greg Lehmkuhl, Lineage’s President and CEO. “We are constantly looking for ways to maximize and further streamline Lineage’s total supply chain, and our meaningful growth in Savannah will offer customers increased access to faster, more reliable distribution opportunities to markets across the Southeast.”
Today, Lineage announced its plans to break ground on a next-generation facility near the Port of Savannah to handle fresh produce and perishable imports. The Company will invest $62 million in the new building, which, upon completion, will create 65 new jobs in Chatham County’s Port Wentworth, in addition to nearly 100 jobs required for the project’s construction. Operating as a cross-dock, in which product enters one side of the building and exits the other side via truck on the same day, the facility will also provide fumigation, packaging and other value-added services for customers to move fresh product efficiently to markets across the Southeast. Construction is expected to be complete by the end of 2022.
In addition, Lineage announced the Phase I opening of its temperature-controlled warehouse on Tremont Road adjacent to the Port of Savannah. Serving both imported and exported products like poultry, the facility features a 19,000-square-foot blast freezer, a boxing room and customs brokerage capabilities to provide streamlined processing in and out of the port. Once fully operational, the facility will employ up to 100 Georgia residents.
“We are thrilled to see Lineage’s significant investment in further strengthening our port infrastructure,” said Cliff Pyron, Chief Commercial Officer of the Georgia Port Authority. “Additional capacity to support our growth will be a benefit to port community as a whole.”
“Congratulations to Lineage Logistics, an international leader in the food supply chain industry, on their two expansions in Savannah. Their use of innovative technology, Savannah’s exceptional workforce and their partnership with the Georgia Ports Authority has led to their past success and laid the groundwork for their future growth in Savannah,” said Savannah Economic Development Authority President and CEO Trip Tollison.
Combined, the newly announced facilities expand Lineage’s presence in the market by more than 500,000 square feet of capacity. In total, the Company’s network will span four facilities in Savannah with twelve facilities across the State of Georgia.
