Lynden provides transportation, logistics and customs clearance for customers' supply chain needs in the U.S. and Canada, including warehousing, distribution, return programs and raw materials handling. The company was selected as a 3PL logistics leader for its collaborative partnerships with customers and innovative services.

"We are proud to be included on these prestigious lists for the sixth consecutive year. Our employees have spent considerable time, thought and effort developing programs and processes that allow us to operate responsibly in the environments where we do business and this award is proof that our efforts are working," says Lynden President Jon Burdick. "We are also proud of our ongoing status as a top 3PL and will continue to partner with our customers to find cost-effective, innovative solutions for their supply chain, transportation and logistics needs."

The company has continued to improve its equipment with more efficient engines; aerodynamic side skirts, tanker, and trailer design; wide-base single tires; and idle-reduction equipment. The improved use of routing software has similarly improved fuel savings, as well as on-time delivery."

"At Lynden, we foster a culture of customer service, innovation and efficiency with a focus on protecting the environments where we do business.
