In response to customer and industry demand, Alaska-based multi-modal transport firm Lynden Transport is offering new scheduled LTL service to Oklahoma and North Dakota, departing twice weekly from Houston, TX, Dallas, TX, Oklahoma City and Tulsa, OK, bound for Williston, ND and points in Alaska and Canada.
This new LTL offering is in addition to Lynden’s Alaska Alcan Highway Service departing twice weekly from Houston and Dallas and returning to Texas departing from Fairbanks, AK, the carrier noted.
"The oil industry in North Dakota and Oklahoma is booming, and we made these service changes to give our customers more choices with departures and arrivals,” said Sherri Brown, Lynden’s regional manager in Houston. “We anticipate North Dakota to be an extremely busy trade lane.”
The new routes are the latest addition to Lynden's other service improvements which include online GPS tracking maps, a new website and what it calls “predictive delivery” – a service providing customers up-to-date delivery times for their shipments in Anchorage, Fairbanks, Kenai, Juneau and Ketchikan.
