"The Lynden companies believe in safety and it is one of our core values at Brown Line," says President Bill Johansen. The dock team, led by Dock Manager James Briscoe, just celebrated five years of working accident and injury free. The seven-member team moves all freight from around the yard, moving trailers and driving forklifts to unload and reload freight. "It takes communication, coordination and collaboration between each of the team members to make this happen," says Manager of Health, Safety, Security and Environment Bill Smith. Bill along with Bill Johansen and John Hillman presented each employee with a custom jacket, a plaque and a certificate commemorating this milestone. "We are very proud of this team and their accomplishments. They are all very humble and get the job done without incident. Their comment? 'Let's go for another five years and beyond!'"
