Last-minute military move completed without a hitch

  
  
  
  

Military moveLynden Transport recently moved 14 vehicles from Fort Richardson to Fort Greely, AK, on short notice to support the training and deployment of a bomb disposal unit to Afghanistan. “We were contacted two days before the move was to take place and because of the short timeline, weights and dimensions couldn’t be verified. We were also dealing with road restrictions,” explains Michael Forsythe, Account Manager at Lynden Transport in Anchorage. “We enlisted the aid of our sister company Alaska West Express for two of the loads.”

On load-out day, the Lynden team discovered the weights and dimensions did not include the attachments on the vehicles. “This presented major challenges with weight restrictions,” Michael says. “We scrambled to get the correct equipment on very short notice, and Alaska West Express ended up round-tripping the team they sent down from Fairbanks. If it wasn’t for the experience and professionalism of the team we assembled, I doubt this could’ve been pulled off.”
