Carlile Introduces New, Affordable Shipping Option for Alaskans
Anchorage, Alaska – Carlile Transportation Systems is launching 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 Linda Leary, Carlile President. “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.

Carlile Transportation Systems is one of Alaska’s largest trucking and logistics companies and operates six terminals in Alaska, three in the Lower 48 and one in Alberta, Canada. The company also provides shipping services to and from Hawaii.
