Lineage Logistics

Lineage Logistics is the fastest-growing and most innovative company in the temperature-controlled logistics industry, which stores, transports, and delivers food eaten by every American. Lineage’s mission is to eliminate waste. To solve the complexities of moving temperature-controlled food safely, quickly, and efficiently around the globe, Lineage approaches these problems as a puzzle to be solved. For example, Lineage employs robotics and the mathematical formalizations of Tetris to store more frozen goods per square foot than was ever thought possible. Lineage customers include Walmart, Tyson, and McDonalds. In 2018, Lineage redesigned warehouse racks to store 25% to 40% more product in the same amount of space. The company also uses a large amount of data to help it learn how to better route trucks, reduce empty space (on average, 40% of refrigerated trucks are empty), and optimize loading. Thanks to its data prowess, what might have required 20 trucks can now be achieved with half as many.
