Span Alaska is building a new 54,000 square-foot Anchorage freight terminal which is expected to open in the fourth quarter 2019. The new facility will function as Span Alaska’s main service center for commercial goods being transported through the Port of Anchorage and throughout the state. Span Alaska’s flagship 88-door cross-dock terminal will consolidate its existing Anchorage operations under one roof, increasing capacity and providing ample room for long-term growth. This new terminal is purpose-built to improve customer experience, streamline freight handling, and enable faster delivery of cargo to its final destination.
