With the expansion, Lineage’s leading presence in the region will total nearly 1.5 million square feet of refrigerated warehousing space across five warehouses located in Seattle, Algona, Tacoma and Centralia.

“We are excited to actively support our customers’ growth by providing expanded warehousing and logistics solutions in Tacoma. The expansion, combined with our strong regional team and our continued investment in new building innovations, will enrich our world-class solution offering in the Pacific Northwest,” said Bill Hendricksen, CEO of Lineage Logistics.
