Key Takeaways: Reimagining the Food Supply Chain

  • Food producers, especially those that require temperature control have traditionally depended on a hodge-podge collection of 3PLs to store and transport their product.
  • Since no one 3PL had the service footprint (warehousing locations) adequate to service the entire country, food producers used multiple cold storage suppliers, which resulted in disparate systems and processes.
  • Predictably, using multiple cold storage facilities led to inefficiency and waste, specifically wasted food.
  • Meanwhile, the bar has raised for food producers. Due to customer demand for faster transit times, food inventory must be stored closer to customers. Additionally, everyone in the food supply chain wants fast, accurate, actionable data. Lastly, food waste has become recognized as a problem. Dumping food into a landfill when there may be hungry people in the community is a problem that must be addressed.
  • Lineage Logistics is transforming the food supply chain. Lineage has embarked on an ambitious plan to create a national footprint that will enable food producers to utilize one 3PL for all their storage, logistics, and transportation needs.
  • Today, Lineage Logistics moves approximately 30% of temperature-controlled food in the U.S. and nearly 10% worldwide. Link to Lineage’s acquisitions.
  • In addition to their impressive service footprint (warehouse locations), Lineage has partnered with Turvo to launch Lineage Link.
  • Lineage Link, powered by Turvo, is a unified and fully integrated supply-chain technology solution that seamlessly connects the Lineage network, driving collaboration, performance, and efficiency for all supply chain participants. The platform gives customers an unprecedented level of insight and control to enable more agile and informed decisions, providing visibility across locations, orders, inventories, transportation, and warehouse appointment scheduling.
