Earlier this summer, the 21st FIFA World Cup 'kicked' off at Moscow's Luzhniki Stadium. The international soccer tournament draws huge crowds cheering for their countries and teams. Lynden played a crucial role in the success of the 2018 games by shipping high-value, fragile camera rigs and equipment from New York to 12 Russian stadiums to ensure that the whole world could see the month-long competition. The camera rigs were controlled by smartphones for the most technologically advanced coverage of the World Cup ever.
Lynden companies have served the government and the Department of Defense (DOD) for decades by providing reliable transportation services, emergency aid, logistics planning and more via air, land and sea. "We offer one of the most logistically diverse transportation services in the world. From flying weekly missions to air bases in Germany and Japan, to mobilizing shipments for Operation Enduring Freedom and Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) disaster response, we understand the unique challenges and deadlines of military and government projects," says Eric Wilson, Lynden Transport's Director of Pricing in Seattle. Lynden has a Government team to ensure military projects are efficiently planned and executed. Each member of the group has military clearance to view project websites and bid on jobs.
