Crossminds advises Lineage Logistics and Bay Grove with the acquisition of Van Tuyl Logistics

Lineage Logistics, the global market leader in logistics and cold storage, expands its European network with the acquisition of Van Tuyl Logistics.

Lineage Logistics

Lineage Logistics has more than 400 coldstores in around 16 countries worldwide and serves customers with activities in the entire food and  perishable goods industries. The group, which is owned by investment company Bay Grove, has grown rapidly in recent years, partly through various acquisitions. Lineage Logistics recently raised € 1.5 billion from various investors to finance further growth and innovation.


Van Tuyl Logistics

Van Tuyl Logistics is a Dutch provider of temperature-controlled logistics based in Gameren that provides refrigerated and frozen transport, employing a modern fleet of 60 trucks and 90 trailers with a self-owned repair station, as well as warehousing services for 30,000 pallet spaces at different temperatures.

“We are pleased to welcome Van Tuyl Logistics into the One Lineage Family as we continue to build momentum and further expand our European operations. The Netherlands remains a critical hub for the food cold chain within the European market, given its central location and accessibility to key seaports and inland terminals. Accordingly, the addition of Van Tuyl will help Lineage to connect more points across our customers’ extended supply chains.”

– Harld Peters, Senior Vice President, Europe at Lineage.
