Lineage Logistics LLC announced its intention to acquire Grupo Fuentes, an operator of transport and cold-storage facilities headquartered in Murcia, Spain.

Grupo Fuentes operates a fleet of over 500 vehicles and trailers, six logistics centers, a cold-storage warehouse and services supporting those facilities. The cold-storage warehouse in Murcia currently has 60,000 pallet positions, with plans to expand the site with an additional 40,000 pallet positions.

Grupo Fuentes counts some of Spain’s major food and retail companies as customers, with a significant share of the business providing cold storage, transport and international transport services covering Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Portugal and the United Kingdom. The acquisition of Grupo Fuentes and its transport fleet is a complement to Lineage’s recent expansion of its European warehouse facilities.
