Lynden helps Starbucks provide warm welcome to refugees

Lynden Logistics' Debbi CrainLynden’s long-time customer Starbucks joined other U.S. companies in a relief effort for Afghan refugees. Lynden Logistics recently handled a ‘hot shot’ shipment of 15,000 black tea bags from York, PA, to Starbucks’ Northern Virginia retail partners in less than nine hours via a cargo van and a dedicated driver. “The arriving Afghan refugees are being served the tea by our Mid-Atlantic partners, and it is a great source of comfort and familiarity in an incredibly stressful time,” the Starbucks Team wrote in a thank you letter to Debbi Crain, Lynden Logistics’ Senior Customer Service Representative in Seattle (pictured). “We were happy to help with this rush project,” Debbi says. “It was pretty normal as part of our everyday work with this customer. Most of our Starbucks shipments are routed throughout the Lower 48 and Canada, often in support of store openings, so we’re used to tight delivery deadlines.”
