The company provides package forwarding, freight logistics and other services to companies that need to ship to Alaska. Carlile is based in Anchorage, Alaska and has terminals located throughout the state. It also has offices in Tacoma, Washington and Houston, Texas.
Carlile's team of experts can create fully integrated supply chain solutions including over the road, air, ocean and rail options. They have extensive experience working with customers in the retail, commercial fishing, oil and gas, mining, construction, energy, and public sectors to deliver products to Alaska and from the state to the lower 48 states and beyond.
The company's wholly owned terminals are in Anchorage, Deadhorse (Prudhoe Bay), Fairbanks, Kenai, Kodiak, Seward and Valdez in Alaska; and in port cities of Tacoma, Blaine, Seattle, and Houston. Carlile is a full service logistics company with a range of services from LTL to oversized cargo and Hazmat and DOE transport.
One of the ways Carlile tries to differentiate itself from competitors is by offering training classes for its customers on local Alaskan idiosyncrasies like road restrictions and seasonal changes. Leary says the class is designed to help clients avoid problems that could result in costly project delays.
The company has been solving complex logistical problems for more than a century, over land, on the water and in the air. The Lynden company has built a reputation for excellence in Alaska and Western Canada, as well as in challenging international markets.
