Kale In Alaska

Sean dolan, Ted Stevens, Amar More

      Ever wonder why the folks in Anchorage, Alaska named their airport Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport?
      Theodore F. Stevens was a powerful advocate for Alaska Industry while serving in the United States Senate for 40 years between 1968-2009.
      He got things done and that included brokering legislation that opened areas of the State that made the Trans Alaska Pipeline possible in 1977.
      But in 2023, you can only imagine the blow back Stevens must have endured.
This politician, born in Indianapolis who attended Harvard Law, migrated just like millions of other Americans to the adventure and promise of Alaska. But he was the real deal; after the tanker Exxon Valdez spilled some 10.9 million gallons of crude oil in Alaska’s Prince William Sound in 1989, Stevens introduced a bill to allocate more federal money to cleanup efforts, arguing that Exxon Corporation had not done enough.
      They build them tough and expansive up in Alaska, and when passion with a purpose comes into focus, great things can happen.
      So word from ANC, everybody’s favorite stopover airport on the Great Circle to and from Asia and North America, that NorthLink Aviation which holds a 55-year lease to develop the 120-acre South Park Cargo Campus at ANC and Kale Logistics Solutions signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) recently to build the next generation of digital cargo infrastructure at ANC is simply stunning. Kale Logistics Solutions is a company that has figured out the digital answer to keep things moving at airports all over the world including the busiest, Hartsfield Jackson International Airport in Atlanta.
      “It is a proud moment for Kale to partner with NorthLink at the world’s third-busiest cargo airport," says Co-Founder and CEO of Kale Logistics Solutions, Amar ‘Action Jackson’ More of the air cargo airport digital age.
      “We are excited by the possibilities that Anchorage offers, and even more excited by NorthLink’s bold vision and passion. We firmly believe that technology is no longer a ‘nice to have’ or a ‘necessary evil,’ but indeed is a business driver for the logistics industry. We look forward to a productive journey with NorthLink.”
      Sean Dolan, CEO, NorthLink Aviation, as Amar noted, shares the passion:
      “Technology is essential to building world-class air cargo infrastructure. Immensely excited and grateful that NorthLink Aviation is partnering with the amazing team at Kale Logistics Solutions as we build the digital infrastructure to expand Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport as a global logistics hub for cross border e-commerce and express freight.
      “A special thank you to Amar More whose expertise, leadership and work ethic are unmatched,” Sean proclaimed.
      To that we can only wonder if at some point HJIA gets around to putting Amar up in bronze somewhere saluting ‘Action Jackson’, the man from Kale, that by golly forever speeded up cargo at the USA’s busiest airport.
