Carlile Enterprises was formed in 1980 by brothers Harry and John McDonald, hometown boys who grew up in Seward, Alaska. Their first contracts included hauling urea from the peninsula to the valley and delivering milk from the valley to Anchorage. Later after more than a few moves the name changed to Carlile Transportation Systems and Linda Leary and Karl Hoenack joined the team and became co-owners. Carlile’s ability to adapt and grow to the needs of the customer is key to their continued success.
In 2008 Linda Leary became Carlile's president and is leading the company into the next chapter. Harry McDonald CEO is still on board daily and John McDonald oversees all the activity with all the Carlile shops and equipment maintenance.
Services include truckload, LTL, heavy haul, haz mat, freeze and chill, warehousing, logistics and more. Primary clients include energy, construction, retail, government and too many more to mention.
Founded in 1980 by brothers John and Harry McDonald, Carlile has grown from two tractors to one of Alaska's largest trucking companies. Carlile Transportation Systems is based in Anchorage, Alaska and employs almost 600 people, including 110 at the Tacoma location. Carlile terminals serve Alaska from Anchorage, Fairbanks, Kenai, Kodiak, Prudhoe Bay/Deadhorse, Seward, Tacoma, WA, Twin Cities, MN, Houston, TX and Edmonton Alberta.
