Lynden International, a freight forwarding and logistics company, opened a new service center in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, on Jan. 1.

The new location adds a strategic link to Lynden's North American and Canadian network and will meet the increasing demand for transportation and logistics services for Canada's oil and gas industry.

Lynden is expanding its long-established truck transportation offerings to include import and export services, freight forwarding, customs brokerage and logistics and warehousing to support oil patch customers who are taking advantage of the booming oil sands development.

This service center will give new customers greater transportation options.

The new service center is located at the Edmonton International Airport in Nisku, Alberta. Lynden has locations all across Canada, including Calgary, Edmonton, Fort Erie, Toronto and Vancouver.
