Lynden Moves Statue

By Karen Robes Meeks

Lynden companies played a significant role in bringing a life-size bronze statue of the late Alaska Senator Ted Stevens to his namesake airport in Anchorage, Alaska. The statue was unveiled Feb. 23.

Lynden – which had a long relationship with Stevens – assisted with customs for shipment of materials from China and shipped materials from Los Angeles to Alaska for the backdrop of the statue.

Alaska Marine Lines picked up the clay form from the artist Joan Bugbee Jackson in Cordova, Alaska for transport to Seattle before delivering it to a foundry in Oregon for bronzing. Lynden Transport was there for the remaining part of the statue’s journey to back to Alaska and stored it in Anchorage until final installation could take place.

"This is such a wonderful tribute to the Senator who truly loved Alaskans and shaped our state," says Jeanine St. John, Vice President of Lynden Logistics.
