Lynden International expands European network with new location in Belgium

SEATTLE - Lynden International, a full-service freight forwarding and logistics company, announced today the opening of a new service center in Brussels, Belgium, operating under a new company, Lynden International (BE). The new location adds a key strategic link to Lynden's extensive global network and will help meet the increasing demand for transportation and logistics services in Belgium's medical, pharmaceutical and other growth industries.

"We are very excited about this opportunity to introduce the Lynden International name and brand to the Western European market," says Lynden International President David Richardson. "We have had an agent presence in Belgium for years and understand the local demographics and business needs, but now we are offering customers the added benefits and capabilities of Lynden's worldwide forwarding and logistics network with its trademark customer service, advanced technologies and solutions-based business approach. This service center will give new customers greater opportunities and improve service to our existing customers."

The Lynden International service center will offer added capabilities to serve the medical and pharmaceutical industries with temperature-controlled shipping and single-point entry departure in and out of Europe. The new service center is located in Brucargo at the cargo terminal of Brussels International Airport, Building 735, B1931.

Lynden International is one of the Lynden family of companies whose combined capabilities include: worldwide air and ocean forwarding, international shipping, freight shipping and logistics, trade show shipping, truckload and less-than-truckload transportation, scheduled and charter barges, intermodal bulk chemical hauls, scheduled and chartered Hercules L-382 cargo aircraft and multi-modal logistics. In 2011, Lynden International was voted the top freight forwarder and had the highest score for on-time performance in Logistics Management magazine's 28th annual Quest for Quality Awards.
