Find A Freight Forwarder in Alaska

This page contains a listing of freight forwarders in Alaska. Its unique location on the northwestern tip of North America makes Alaska a vital gateway for international trade across the Pacific Ocean. Because the state’s rugged natural terrain prevents efficient ground transportation, Alaskan trade connections rely primarily on sea and air routes. Anchorage, the capital city, is the largest point of distribution for air cargo to and from the lower 48 states and China – Alaska’s largest trading partner. Off the coast, a portion of the great circle route, heavily used by vessels for both international and domestic trade, crosses through Alaska’s Aleutian Islands. Because the North Pacific waters can be hazardous and difficult to navigate, ships that travel this route are often equipped with special safeguards against severe weather conditions. Alaska’s domestic economy revolves around natural resources. Petroleum extraction and trade account for the majority of the state’s annual income. Other main export industries include the extraction of natural gas and minerals, mining and fishing.
