Overview

Alaska is Lynden’s home turf and we know the 49th state like no other transportation or logistics company. We serve the entire state and offer a full range of transportation options across all modes – air, land, and sea – so customers can optimize time and money when shipping to, from, or within Alaska. Lynden’s diverse capabilities allow customers to vary shipping speeds to match their requirements. The ability to balance speed and cost, and create an optimal mix for a given project or solution, gives customers a very powerful link in their supply chain.

We pioneered the first regular trucking service to Alaska with over-the-road service in 1954, and now our network of Service Centers span the state. As Alaska transportation pioneers, our employees have a can-do spirit and a commitment to serving this area with its challenging weather and terrain. We are Alaskan-owned and operated, and we take pride in keeping the supply chain moving, bringing food, cars, household items, and commercial freight to ensure Alaska and its people continue to survive and thrive.
