Maui continues to rebuild after last year’s devastating wildfires. Lynden Logistics assisted in the recovery by coordinating two priority shipments of fragile electrical panels from Washington to the island to rebuild a school there. "We had them crated and flown to Maui from our Seattle office," explains Mary Kutscherenko, Hawaii Trade Lane Sales Manager. "The first shipment was for the temporary Lahaina School put in place after the fires, so you can imagine the urgency to finish it and get these kids back in school. The team at our Lynden Seattle Service Center is made up of top-notch people who care about customers and always deliver quality service," Mary says. "Kirk Knudson, Jen Aliiaana, Debbie Chervenak, Debbi Crain and others on the team gave us up-to-the-minute pickup and transfer info."

A dedicated truck was used to deliver the crates to the airlines for loading onto a wide-body plane direct to Maui from Seattle. The specialized crating was required to avoid a barge transfer from Oahu to Maui. The 7-foot by 5-foot panels were laid flat to fit on the plane safely to Maui. "The crates made it to Maui and the panels were quickly delivered for Alpha Electric who installed them at the school. We were happy to play a role in this important project,"
Mary says.
