ANCHORAGE, Alaska, Feb. 28, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- In response to customer and industry demand, Lynden Transport is offering new scheduled Less-than-Truckload (LTL) service to Oklahoma and North Dakota. Starting March 1, Lynden Transport trucks will depart twice weekly from Houston, Dallas, Oklahoma City and Tulsa bound for Williston, ND and points in Alaska and Canada.
Lynden Transport has supported the oil industry for years with Alaska Alcan Highway Service departing twice weekly from Houston and Dallas and return service to Texas departing from Fairbanks, AK.
"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. We also would like to help customers who may want to venture into these markets and take advantage of new opportunities. We have extensive experience moving equipment, supplies and oversized freight in support of the oil industry in Texas, Alaska and Canada, so this is a logical next step for us. We anticipate North Dakota to be an extremely busy trade lane," says Sherri Brown, Regional Manager for Lynden Transport in Houston.
The new routes are the latest addition to Lynden Transport's other service improvements which include online GPS tracking maps, a new website and Predictive Delivery, a service providing customers up-to-date delivery times for their shipments in Anchorage, Fairbanks, Kenai, Juneau and Ketchikan.
