Arctic Directory: Carlile introduces affordable shipping for Alaskans

Carlile Transportation Systems said Aug. 15 that it has launched a new expedited over-the-road freight forwarding service between its Tacoma and Anchorage terminals, giving small businesses and online shoppers a convenient, affordable shipping solution to Alaska. The new service is called Carlile Package Express.

Alaskans ordering products online traditionally pay high shipping costs compared to customers in the Lower 48. Carlile Package Express saves Alaskans money when shipping smaller and pallet-sized purchases by having their orders delivered to Carlile’s Tacoma Terminal. Carlile then transports the shipment via the Alcan Highway to its Anchorage Terminal in about three days.

“Carlile Package Express gives Alaskans a solution to high shipping costs for their purchases,” said Carlile President Linda Leary. “If it can fit on a pallet, we’ll get it to Anchorage for about half the cost of air rates.”

Carlile Package Express customers can get shipping estimates using an online calculator and will receive daily email updates. All shipments can be picked up at the Anchorage Logistics, Fairbanks, Kenai, Kodiak and Seward Terminals.

Customers can get information and pricing for Carlile Package Express at www.carlile.biz.
