Our Lineage.

The Lineage we know today started with the purchase of a single warehouse in Seattle, Washington. Since that acquisition in 2008, we’ve welcomed some of the most prestigious and respected cold chain companies into the Lineage family. 

Today, we are an organization that is deeply rooted in generations of cold storage expertise and on the cutting edge of technology and innovation. Learn more about our heritage below.
