Environmental Stewardship

Lynden was founded on principles of integrity and quality. Our environmental commitment is based on a common-sense desire to be efficient and to do things right. Our culture of innovation and efficiency is completely in harmony with our commitment to protect the environment. Lynden's people, equipment, processes and technology are focused on the efficient use of resources and sustainable operations.

New Ultra-Efficient Engines and Tractors

Newer engines are more efficient and emit fewer air pollutants.

  • 100% meet new EPA emission standards
  • 90% are less than 5 years old
  • Meets and exceed voluntary SmartWay specifications for heavy trucks
  • Considered the most fuel efficient trucks on the market
  • Overall tractor weight is 2,500 lbs lighter

Aerodynamics

Our new cab design, with roof fairing, side skirts, integrated sleeper, and aerodynamic mirrors and bumper reduces drag and our new ultra-lightweight 53' trailers use side skirts and trailer tails.

Our tank trucks are equipped with a jacketing system with belly pan to cover cross-members and enclose outriggers and bolsters. We are also working with WSU College of Engineering to model and refine the aerodynamics of our milk tank trucks in their wind tunnel.

Tires

A tire pressure monitoring system lets the driver spot and correct any inflation issues while periodic laser alignment helps reduce tire wear and improve fuel efficiency.

Low Rolling Resistance Wide-Base Singe tires have replaced traditional dual tires are being replaced with low rolling resistance wide-base single tires.

Auxiliary Power Units and Other On-board Equipment

We use APU's for certain long line haul lanes. These small generators provide heat, cooling and electricity, allowing drivers to shut down engines during downtime.

On-board lube systems grease the truck while in motion to keep 5th wheel and other points lubricated reducing tire scrub and friction.

Our onboard oil filtration system has dramatically increased the interval between oil changes to 100,000+ miles.

LTI, Inc. tankers pneumatic locking system has reduced the need for bio-security seals. Tankers that used to need 10 seals now need only 3. Once those three points are closed and sealed, the remaining points of entry are locked by pneumatic pistons.

Reefers

Electric rather than diesel reefers are used on ship, rail, and truck.

For barge freight, new state of the art refrigerated trailers plug into electricity while on shore, and use time-share units to cycle between two reefers every four hours. These fixed units reduce the amount of electricity needed at port. Similar portable units reduce the amount of diesel required to power generators to keep freight cool at sea.

Tankers

Lynden Tank Company designed an innovative "pneumatic locking system" for our LTI, Inc. fleet that reduces the need for plastic Bio-security seals. Tankers that previously required ten seals, now require only three. Once these three points are closed and sealed, the remaining points of entry are locked by pneumatic pistons. This adds up to approximately 5,000 fewer seals used per day and also improves safety by reducing the number of trips that our drivers must climb up the ladder.

Maintenance

We have a meticulous service and maintenance schedule — optimizing equipment, safety, efficiency, and performance.
