Western Distribution Services, LLC (“WDS” or the “Company”) operates both cold and dry storage facilities in the greater Seattle area. The company operates over 13 million cubic feet of storage capacity and offers a broad array of storage and value-added services, including handling and freezing of product.

After a decade of operating the Company, the owners wished to identify a buyer that could continue the growth and success of the Company.

ZS Role

WDS engaged Zachary Scott to represent the Company in its search for a partner to acquire 100% of the business.


Zachary Scott organized a competitive sale process that attracted a range of bids from industry participants and qualified financial buyers. WDS was ultimately acquired by Lineage Logistics, a portfolio company of Bay Grove Capital. The business combination will further extend Lineage’s presence in the Pacific Northwest and add more value-added services to its offerings.
