Oversized compressor goes land-sea-land to Ninilchik

Posted on Sat, Mar 16, 2013

AWE oversized loadDelays in super-load permits and customs paperwork created some nail-biting moments for Lynden employees who were charged with transporting a 120,000-pound load from Calgary to Anchorage and on to Ninilchik near Kenai. The compressor was not only heavy, its 30-foot by 14-foot by 12-foot high stature required special paperwork for a ship sailing and truck transport – and the customer needed it right away.

“We brought the compressor from Canada to Seattle to make a Friday ship sailing to Alaska. In addition, five support loads, including three oversized, had to be transported via truck and on site to beat the compressor delivery,” explains Jacob Harrison, Account Executive with Lynden Transport in Anchorage. 

Another challenge came with delayed customs paperwork. “By the time we received it, it was too late for Keith Hall at Lynden Logistics to clear the shipment, so we were pushed back a day. Keep in mind, this unit needed to move as soon as possible to make the sailing cutoff time,” Jacob explains.

Lynden Transport Fife’s Neil Cranford was at the ship transfer site when the compressor arrived. When it was lifted via crane, one of the picking points began to bend under the stress of the weight. Neil found an alternative connection and the crane operator successfully transferred the unit to Lynden’s “Dakota” trailer which the Anchorage operations team had previously moved to Seattle.  

 “Drivers Ron Calkins and Anthony Brocato worked against the clock to make sure the unit was lashed correctly and moved to the ship safely,” Neil explains. “If not for their professionalism on site, this unit would not have made it through the stringent flatbed tying requirements.”

The compressor finally arrived in Anchorage and was transported to Ninilchik by Alaska West Express Driver Brian Ambrose. “Larry Kohlmaier, Cale Larson and Myles Hursley of Canadian Lynden Transport were key in the planning and execution of this move,” Jacob says. “With the contributions of Neil, Keith, Eric Wilson, Mark Graves and Justus Uphus of Lynden Transport, we made the customer’s deadline and secured future business.”

Lynden Logistics expands network with new service center in Edmonton

Posted on Wed, Jan 02, 2013

Lynden Logistics, a full-service freight forwarding and logistics company, opened a new service center in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, on January 1st. The new location adds a strategic link to Lynden's North American and Canadian network and will meet the increasing demand for transportation and logistics services for Canada's oil and gas industry.

Lynden International Oil Industry

"Lynden has served Canada for many years through Lynden Transport in Edmonton, Calgary and Whitehorse and we are pleased to now introduce Lynden's Logistics services to our customers in the Alberta market," says Rob Clarke, Lynden International's Canadian Business Development Director. "We are expanding our long-established truck transportation offerings to include import and export services, freight forwarding, customs brokerage and logistics and warehousing to support oil patch customers who are taking advantage of the booming oil sands development. We also offer customers the capabilities of Lynden's worldwide forwarding and logistics network with its trademark customer service, advanced technologies and solutions tailored to meet customer's individual logistical needs.

Lynden Logistics launches enhanced ocean service to Puerto Rico

Posted on Thu, Aug 02, 2012

Lynden Logistics, a full-service freight forwarding and logistics company, is offering an enhanced ocean product to support customers in Puerto Rico and in other retail markets. Lynden has served customers on the island since 1977 by consolidating freight in the U.S., then shipping, receiving and warehousing goods at its San Juan office.

“Lynden has always offered customers an ocean product, but it’s now a more defined service with a consistent schedule, faster transit times and a competitive price,” explains Juan Carlos Cruz, District Manager in Puerto Rico. Two new Domestic Ocean Service center points have been added to Lynden’s existing Nashville consolidation point. Lynden also added a truck route twice a week from Los Angeles to Nashville to catch the twice-weekly sailing to San Juan, Puerto Rico. “Most other forwarders offer one only consolidation per week,” Cruz notes.

As part of the enhanced ocean service, Lynden’s online shipping and tracking tool, EZ Commerce, was also improved. When booking shipments through EZ Commerce, customers are now offered a domestic ocean option to move freight to a domestic port in Puerto Rico or Hawaii. This gives customers more flexibility when choosing a shipping mode and allows them to ship both priority and deferred using existing EZ Commerce draft and address book functions. The enhancements are a direct result of the growth in ocean shipping and Lynden’s commitment to streamline the process for customers.

“One of our fastest growing products is ocean less-than-container-load and full-container-load (LCL/FCL) services,” Cruz says. “This increase allows us to go to our ocean carriers and negotiate more competitive rates which can then be passed on to our customers.” Lynden’s facility in Carolina, Puerto Rico features a 35,000-square-foot, state-of-the-art warehouse with nine dock doors to receive customers’ freight for warehouse management or 3PL business opportunities. In addition to warehousing, Lynden offers reliable and affordable air and ocean services, customs brokerage and delivery throughout the island. Lynden’s fleet of four tractor-trailers and smaller trucks offer customers complete delivery coverage inside and outside the metro area. Lynden also provides retailers with white glove service for delivery of furniture and electronics including unwrapping, assembling and setting up merchandize inside customers’ homes.

Lynden Logistics is one of the Lynden family of companies whose combined capabilities include: worldwide air and ocean forwarding,  international shipping, freight shipping and logistics, trade show shipping, truckload and less-than-truckload transportation, scheduled and charter barges, intermodal bulk chemical hauls, scheduled and chartered Hercules L-382 cargo aircraft and multi-modal logistics. Lynden Logistics was voted top forwarder in the 2011 Quest for Quality Awards presented by Logistics Management magazine.
