CHARLESTON — South Carolina Ports celebrates Lineage Logistics’ (“Lineage”) newly expanded facility in Charleston and the enhanced cold storage capabilities it brings to customers.

As the world’s largest and most innovative temperature-controlled industrial REIT and logistics solutions provider, Lineage provides efficient, effective temperature-controlled solutions to protect the integrity of products being shipped worldwide. Lineage moves more than 30% of the temperature-controlled food products across the United States, and nearly 10% of temperature-controlled food products globally.

Lineage’s $34 million investment to expand its facility in Charleston County was driven by strong customer demand, interest in the Charleston market and proximity to the Port of Charleston.

The facility — located at 7748 Palmetto Commerce Parkway in North Charleston — is now 316,357 square feet, up from 190,345 square feet. The facility expansion adds more than 18,000 pallet positions to the building, bringing the facility’s total to nearly 38,000 pallet positions.

S.C. Ports finishes strong year

The expansion supports the growth of import and export customers within Lineage’s growing network of 5,000-plus customers, including Fortune 500 big-box retailers, grocery stores and family-owned businesses.

“Lineage Logistics provides world-class, temperature-controlled solutions for companies, and their latest expansion further supports the cold storage needs of our customers,” said Micah Mallace, SC Ports’ senior vice president of marketing and sales. “This significant expansion provides additional refrigerated and frozen storage capacity, as well as enhanced capabilities to handle the rising imports of fresh produce, fruits and other refrigerated goods coming in to serve the growing Southeast consumer market.”
