SEATTLE, June 2, 2015 /CNW/ -- Lynden International, a full-service freight forwarding and logistics company, acquired Haas Industries on June 1 to enhance its network and services throughout the Lower 48 and Canada. The acquisition strengthens Lynden's capabilities for home delivery, trade show, and specialized delivery services within those markets.
"Lynden and Haas are a great fit and the combination of our two companies will allow us to continue building our domestic service portfolio. Our organizations also share common values and attributes – both believe in building strong partnerships with customers – which will produce a seamless integration of our companies," says John Kaloper, Lynden Vice President America Division. "We're excited about the possibilities."
Haas Industries began serving customers in 1989 with a vision of offering an unparalleled level of reliability, flexibility and service within the freight forwarding industry. "Over that time, we've forged many long-term partnerships with clients, but ultimately we believe our vision has been achieved. Now is the time to create a new vision; one that produces even greater opportunities for our employees, associates and, most importantly, our customers," says President Keith Haas. Haas Industries is now operating as Lynden International.
Lynden International is one of the Lynden family of companies whose combined capabilities include worldwide air and ocean forwarding, third-party logistics, trade show shipping, shipping to Alaska, truckload and less-than-truckload transportation, scheduled barges to Alaska and Hawaii, charter barges, intermodal bulk chemical hauls, scheduled and chartered Hercules L-382 cargo aircraft and multi-modal logistics. Lynden companies are repeat winners in the annual Quest for Quality awards presented by Logistics Management magazine.
