Lineage Logistics and OmniTRAX Team up to Expand JBS Foods’ Worldwide Reach
DENVER – April 5, 2022 – Great Western Industrial Park (GWIP), a 3,000-acre master planned development owned and operated by The Broe Group, has been selected as the site of JBS Foods’ newest global food supply chain hub. Lineage Logistics, the world’s largest and most innovative temperature-controlled industrial REIT and logistics provider, purchased the 14.86 acre GWIP parcel for the new project from The Broe Group’s transportation affiliate, OmniTRAX.
“Great Western Industrial Park’s strategic location and OmniTRAX’s rail solution offer unparalleled efficiencies and a key connection to the class I rail network and domestic ports,” said Lineage Logistics President and CEO Greg Lehmkuhl.
The new Lineage parcel will house a next generation cold storage facility custom built for global food leader JBS Foods. OmniTRAX will design, build and operate a custom rail solution for the new Lineage facility that unlocks bulk shipment export efficiency and enables worldwide reach.
“OmniTRAX provides customized rail and real estate solutions that meet our customers’ needs,” said OmniTRAX CEO Dean Piacente. “By linking rail and real estate with Lineage Logistics automation, this new project will be a model for optimizing global supply chains.” With a forecasted 2023 project completion, Lineage Logistics’ new facility will leverage the power of industry-leading technology, automation, and transportation to deliver JBS Foods shipments anywhere in the world.
