Lynden’s restored tractor and trailer that began Alcan service in 1954 has undergone a refresh and update in preparation for a busy travel season. Each year, the iconic tractor-trailer is part of community events and parades throughout Alaska and Washington. A museum showcasing Lynden’s history is inside the trailer and is open for tours during the events. Chairman Jim Jansen is often at the wheel in addition to other Lynden drivers. Events include the Colony Days Parade in Palmer, Alaska, the Golden Days Parade in Fairbanks, and the Alaska Trucking Association’s Truck Driving Championships in Anchorage, as well as many others. Keep an eye out for No. 27 this summer and check out the museum.

Instead, the Alaska Business editorial team held long, detailed, and occasionally passionate discussions about which organizations around the state were providing jobs, owned or leased property, used local vendors, demonstrated a high level of community engagement, and in general enriched Alaska.
