Lineage Management Program

Kickstart your career in cold chain operations


Put your career on the fast track

The global Lineage Management Program (LMP) provides a one-of-a-kind, hands-on training experience to high-potential team members who are ready to accelerate their careers in the cold chain.

During the 20-week development program, you will be assigned to on-site rotational assignments designed to help you to get to know the company, develop your skills and execute key projects in a highly supportive environment.

The goal: get fully immersed in the cold chain and lay the groundwork for your future success.


My experience as an LMP trainee provided the opportunity to take what I had learned in the classroom and jump right in to begin gaining real world experience. The program is an excellent starting point for anyone looking to build a career in the global supply chain.

Grow your network

Participants receive direct coaching from facility and regional leaders who are invested in your success and development. You will be able to connect with and learn from leaders from across the company—from operations and sales leadership to cross-functional experts and the Lineage executive leadership team.

On top of that, you will join a competitive, dynamic group of other management program trainees who are going through the same experiences as you.


Learn the business

You may know nothing about cold storage today, but you will learn everything you need to know to be successful in our industry over the course of the program.
