2020 YEAR IN REVIEW: Our Family Keeps Growing Across the Globe
December 30, 2020
By any standard, Lineage put up some amazing growth numbers in 2020 – regardless of the year’s unforeseen and unprecedented circumstances. With 36+ acquisitions, we added more than 15 new companies, 120+ facilities and over 4,000 Team Members to what is already the world’s largest and most dynamic cold storage and logistics company.
But there’s a number that means the most to us: One.
As Lineage continues to rapidly expand our resources and capabilities through acquisitions in the United States and abroad, ensuring the companies we bring together work as “One Lineage” is vitally important. In a year filled with unexpected challenges, we proved that the whole is multiple times greater when its individual parts work collectively toward a unified purpose.
This year, guided by our best-of-breed approach, Lineage continued to bring together companies that share our values and purpose. We identified respected, innovative cold chain companies in strategic locations and welcomed them into the Lineage family. Our tried and tested integration approach quickly earned the trust and partnership of the companies we acquired, and we were able to instantly offer our customers access to an even stronger global network.
