Lynden Trusted with High-Value Move to the Slope

Lynden Transport and Lynden Air Cargo recently completed a joint move with a customer to transport a generator valued at $1 million from Kenai to an oil field near Prudhoe Bay. The photo was taken on the tarmac at the Kenai Airport and shows a winch being used to secure the generator onto the plane.

“We usually do these types of moves a few times a year from Kenai and deliver to various sites in Prudhoe Bay,” says Kenai Service Center Manager Andy Collins. “The moves often consist of very high-value pieces of equipment such as turbines or generators. They move via air due to the value and delicate nature of the cargo.” The Lynden crew picked up the generator at the customer’s warehouse using a 53-foot step deck trailer which provides a smooth air ride and the perfect transfer height for the rear door of the Hercules aircraft.

According to Andy, Ralph Hemphill was the driver on this project. “He did an outstanding job,” he says. “The move was completed without a hitch. We also would like to give kudos to Lynden Air Cargo Loadmaster E.J. Peters for his help.”
