Two 7-foot by 9-foot 3,000-pound antennae were transported late last year for SpaceX by Lynden Transport. It was the first of many Alaska deliveries to follow.
“They were delivered to us in Fife, and they required careful loading for the trip north,” says John Husby, Northwest Regional Sales Manager. “They are extremely fragile, so no other freight can come in contact with them. The crew that loaded and secured them did a fantastic job. Fife Operations Supervisor Zach Joraanstad was the lead on the project, and Drivers Casey Mack, Lyn Smith and Cameron Heaton transported them. “We have delivered these high-value antenna to various Alaska locations over the past year as the global installation of satellites continues,” John says. Lynden transported 27 units in all – nine to Fairbanks, nine to Ketchikan and nine more to Nome in 2021.
