Lineage Logistics, LLC ("Lineage"), one of the world’s largest temperature-controlled warehousing and logistics companies, announced Tuesday a strategic partnership with BluJay Solutions (“BluJay”), formerly Kewill, the global leader in transportation management solutions. The partnership designates Lineage as the exclusive third-party logistics provider to manage customers’ food and beverage supply chains using BluJay’s Transportation Management solution, formerly LeanTMS, powered by its Global Trade Network.
The strategic partnership enables customers in the food and beverage industry to outsource the management of their transportation network by leveraging BluJay’s highly scalable TMS with Lineage’s diverse network of facilities, which spans more than 100 locations across North America with 609 million cubic feet of temperature-controlled capacity.
