Lynden employee, Rosalia Alexander, has a blast meeting a rush deadline
Fri, Jan 19, 2024
When a mining customer asked for pink chalk for a mine blast in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Lynden Transport Logistics Coordinator Rosalia Alexander made it happen.
Jamie Bro with Fort Knox Mine reached out about moving a pallet of pink chalk from the east coast on a Thursday morning with delivery to Alaska by the following Tuesday. "I responded that, unless it went air, it would be tough to guarantee that delivery," Rosalia says, "but if it was sourced closer to the west coast, we could do some over the road options. Jamie found some in Utah." Rosalia used a dedicated truck loading on Thursday in Utah for Friday delivery to the dock in Fife, WA leaving that night on the QuickTrans to Fairbanks and was available for pick up on Monday as promised. "It is a lot of fun when you can pull together different methods of transportation to get something like this done for a customer," Rosalia says.
