Project Details

Lineage Logistics is one of the country’s largest providers of customized cold chain solutions. The firm specializes in public refrigerated warehousing, port-centric warehousing and dedicated distribution facilities. To meet the demands of its growing clientele, Lineage selected Primus to provide design-build services for a 180,000 SF greenfield cold storage distribution facility located in North Charleston, SC. This facility serves as a regional import/export hub for protein products destined for domestic and international markets. The facility features the newest high-capacity blast freezing technology and offers road and rail access (via a Norfolk Southern rail line) as well as immediate ship access to the Port of Charleston.


Additional features include:

  • Convertible freezers with temperatures ranging from -10°F to 35°F
  • Shipping, receiving and rail/cross docks maintained at 35°F
  • 30 dock doors and 4 rail doors
  • USDA inspection room
  • Opportunity battery charging
  • Maintenance shop
  • Railcar loading/unloading
  • Transloading services
  • Custom labeling and stamping

The facility is capable of loading or unloading up to 100 trucks per day and can store 50 million pounds of product. Among the cold cargo moving through the port is poultry headed to Asia, beef shipped from Australia and citrus headed for France.

This project achieved LEED Silver Certification.
