Lineage Logistics is breaking ground on a cold-storage facility at Tauranga in the Bay of Plenty region of New Zealand’s North Island. The 6,676 m2 facility will provide cold storage and logistics solutions to food and beverage customers and create 18 new jobs.

Stage one of construction, scheduled for completion in August 2022, is expected to create capacity for 10,000 pallets and three blast-freezing rooms. Once fully developed, the facility will have capacity for 30,000 pallets and complement Lineage’s locations in Australia, Sri Lanka, Vietnam and China.
