In News1 MinutesBy NZ Trucking magazineDecember 8, 2023

Temperature-controlled supply chain and logistics company Lineage is expanding its New Zealand operations with a new cold-storage facility in Tauranga.

Located at 15 Anianiku Place, in Tauriko, the facility includes over three million cubic feet of space and more than 16,000 pallet positions.

The new facility brings the number of Lineage’s facilities in New Zealand to 25, stretching from Auckland to Dunedin.

Lineage regional vice president for New Zealand, Guy Moniz, said the access to the Port of Tauranga was one of the many advantages of building the facility.

“With our new facility less than 20km from one of the country’s largest ports, we are well-positioned to continue delivering excellence in supply chain solutions and serve our customers in the region,” he said.

“This strategic expansion further strengthens Lineage’s offering to our customers across the country, providing exporters with access to a leading global network.”

In line with Lineage’s commitment to sustainability, energy efficiency was a central consideration in the construction of the project. The warehouse is equipped with a rainwater harvesting system for refrigeration condensing, rapid doors on all chambers to minimise temperature fluctuations, and features an 890kW solar array for power generation.
