Lineage Logistics, one of the largest cold storage and logistics companies in the world, is building a new automated warehouse and announced it is expanding its Canada cross-border services program to new delivery points.

The new warehouse, to be located in Hazleton, Pennsylvania, U.S.A., will be a fully automated “next-generation facility” covering roughly 386,000 square feet. Lineage said the location will give it access to 60 million people within a 250-mile radius of the facility, making it strategically positioned for “its customers and their customers.”

"As a testament to our commitment to meeting our customers’ needs, we're excited to complete the construction of this cutting-edge facility in Hazleton while simultaneously fostering job growth in the communities we serve," Lineage North America East President Matt Cramer said in a release.

The new facility is already under construction, and Lineage said the company is currently hiring for roles within the new facility.

"This latest addition to our automated network furthers our purpose of delivering food safely and reliably to millions of families around the globe,” Cramer said.

Lineage expects construction to be complete in fall 2024.

Just days before announcing the new facility, Lineage also announced it is expanding its cross-border program in Canada. The cross-border network has multiple delivery points in the country, including the cities of Vancouver, Kelowna, Calgary, Edmonton, Saskatoon, Regina, Winnipeg, Toronto, Red Deer, Montreal, and a new terminal in Moncton that will open in the spring. 

The company said the network will be connected by cross-border points in the U.S. located in Hobart, Indiana and Burien, Washington.

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