Shipping by day, Singing by night.

Posted on Thu, May 20, 2010

Billed as the newest voice in Texas music, Lynden International Import Agent Carl Fendley spends his days coordinating imports at the Houston station and his nights playing area clubs like "Numbers." His first single, "Best Part of Me," is in rotation on internet radio stations and is available on itunes, Amazon and Napster. Carl's music is a mix of honky tonk with a laid-back island sound.

He celebrates two years with Lynden next month and says, "I have been truly blessed since I have been at Lynden with the birth of my twins last year and a great supervisor in Vickie Gould."
Carl grew up in the small Texas town of Cleveland and taught himself to play guitar at age 7. In his teen years he played the local club circuit of Houston in a rock band. After the band broke up, Carl went to community college followed by a year off to work in the oil fields. He later joined the U.S. Army and it was during his four-year stint that he started to write songs.

After his discharge, he got together with his old band and formed "Solid Oak," an acoustic alternative rock band. In the following years, he played in other bands and is now trying to make it on his own as a professional songwriter. Listen in on Carl's website, www.carlfendley.com.

Carl and his wife, Amie, celebrated the first birthday of their twin son and daughter, Jagger and Jules, on April 27. Carl also has three stepchildren, Alex, Kyle and Lillie. "I just sent three demos to a Texas record label, but I'm taking things slow," he says. "My twins just turned one, and my duty as daddy comes first."

Heavy haul capabilities increased with new equipment

Posted on Tue, May 04, 2010

Canadian Lynden Transport stepped up service in February with the addition of a 60-ton step deck to its fleet. The new trailer is 3,000 pounds lighter than the one currently in service, but can carry more weight -- approximately 10 tons more. It has an expanding axle system to handle heavy haul loads over the Alcan and a lower floor height so drivers can haul taller loads than before.

Now that the Tok Bridge replacement is done, trucks can carry more weight on the Alaska Highway. The new trailer couldn't have come at a better time. Oil field customers can use versatile new equipment like this for drill rig moves between Alberta, B.C. and the Port of Houston. Home base for the new step deck is Edmonton so it can fan out to any location for customer use.

From the Lynden Archives: The article was originally written in March 2010.
