Barge Operators Northland Join Lynden Group
Sunday, November 03, 2013

The Lynden family of companies welcomes Northland Services, a marine transportation company providing shipping between Seattle, Alaska and Hawaii.

Northland is a dynamic company with talented people and a great reputation," says Lynden President and CEO Jon Burdick. "Its barge capabilities to Hawaii and Western Alaska complement Lynden's current service offerings and allow us to provide expanded services to our customers. We can now offer integrated service to more Alaska destinations, with more frequency and greater combined capabilities."

Northland's barge service from the Pacific Northwest to Hawaii enhances Lynden's current ship and air services to the islands. The addition of Northland's Western Alaska barge services enables Lynden to service ports throughout the State of Alaska. Both companies share a commitment to keep customers' freight moving smoothly and efficiently through the transition process.

"Lynden provides an ideal situation to better serve our customers, our employees and the communities where we operate," explains Larry Stauffer, President and CEO of Northland. "We have seen significant growth in our business over the past decade, and bringing two great companies and teams together will help improve and expand service in the communities we serve."

The Lynden family of companies includes Lynden Transport, LTI, Inc., Milky Way, Alaska West Express, Alaska Marine Lines, Lynden Air Cargo, Brown Line, LLC, Lynden International and others.
