Lineage Logistics Breaks Ground on New Facility in Charleston

Lineage Logistics, Colton, Calif., will break ground on a state-of-the-art 340,000-square-foot cold storage distribution facility in Charleston County, S.C., in July. The Lineage Logistics Charleston Harborproject is expected to create more than 80 new jobs when completed.

“Specific customer needs and comprehensive infrastructure in the world-class Port of Charleston makes this key logistics hub an important addition to our other port-centric facilities on the East coast. Our team has been working in partnership with state and local officials for over a year to bring a significant investment and new jobs to the Charleston community—the ease of doing business has been impressive and will accelerate completion of this facility,” says Bill Hendricksen, chief executive officer.

The new facility will be located in the Palmetto Commerce Park at 7748 Palmetto Commerce Parkway in North Charleston with immediate access to the Port of Charleston and rail access, providing regular service on Norfolk Southern switches.

It will also feature the latest technology in high-capacity blast freezing and new transportation solutions to provide customers a highly efficient solution to export proteins to foreign markets. The new site will also include new design features that expedite domestic consumer access to imported products.
