SHIPPING TO ALASKA
Shipping freight to Alaska
Span Alaska Transportation provides over-the-water shipping of freight twice weekly via steamship, or weekly via barge, from the Port of Tacoma, Washington to the Port of Anchorage, Alaska. Our expert logistics team then uses rail, road, and air to deliver your freight to its final destination within Alaska. Have LTL (less than truckload) or LCL (less than container) freight? Not a problem. We move more LTL and LCL freight than any other carrier in Alaska.
KFF (keep from freezing) options from the end of September through the middle of April depending on weather.
We serve all points in Alaska. Please call your local Span Alaska office, or call 1-800-257-7726 for schedules and cut-offs to other Alaska destinations.
