March 28, 2024 – Lineage, one of the world’s leading temperature-controlled industrial REITs and integrated solutions providers, today announced the strategic expansion of its warehousing network with a new site in Waddell, Arizona nearing completion.

The new facility is Lineage’s first public warehouse in the Phoenix market and, coupled with the company’s integrated solutions that facilitate seamless movement of products, will allow it to expand storage capacity and distribution capabilities across the Southwestern United States, including the highly populated Greater Los Angeles area.

“The strategic positioning of our facility in Arizona underscores Lineage’s continued efforts to effectively serve our customers in the Southwest and beyond with end-to-end solutions that address all aspects of their supply chains,” said Brian Beattie, President, North America West at Lineage. “We look forward to further deepening our customer partnerships in the area and addressing the crucial need for advanced cold-storage operations.”

Constructed by Cold Summit Development and located at 9600 N. 151st Avenue, the Waddell facility will span approximately 170,000 square feet and include 28,000 pallet positions. Complete with 20 dock doors, double deep racking, drop trailer/container plug-ins, and more, the facility can be converted from -20°F to 50°F for storing a variety of temperature-sensitive products.

In addition to cold storage, the facility will offer comprehensive and customized services designed to cater to the diverse needs of its customers including case picking, cross-docking, defrosting/tempering, temperature reduction, transloading and managed transportation. Full EDI capabilities and WMS technology will help further maximize operational efficiency and streamline cold-storage processes.

Lineage expects the new Waddell facility to begin operating in July 2024.
