Washington sigh is understood for its perishables market — apples, cherries and salmon — and Seattle logistics groups know bag out how to salvage a switch on to ship produce for optimal freshness.  

Alaska Air Cargo leveraged its cool-chain capabilities to provide original hops a jump between central Washington to breweries in Hawaii and Alaska, with only 24 hours to salvage the hops off the plane and into the boil for the most moving beer model.  

Spherical 1,200 lbs (spherical 1/2 tonne) of hops were bagged onsite immediately after picking, loaded into refrigerated vans and pushed to Seattle-Tacoma Worldwide Airport (SEA) to be flown to brewers in Maui and Anchorage.
