Customized freight pickup and delivery service
When you’re shipping freight to, from, or across Alaska, it usually requires more than “port-to-port” or “airstrip-to-airstrip” pickup and delivery service.Read More
For both that first mile (e.g., from a manufacturing facility to warehouse where cargo is consolidated into pallets or containers) to that final mile (e.g., from storage to a retail outlet) Royal Alaskan Movers offers drayage services.
While short distance pickup and delivery may comprise only a few miles in your overall supply chain, those miles are no less critical.
When you partner with Royal Alaskan Movers, we will create a customized shipping and logistics plan that covers every step in that chain, and provide a start-to-finish freight service that doesn’t stop at the port, but goes curbside, inside, upstairs — wherever you need each container, pallet, or crate delivered.
What our Customers are saying
What does drayage mean for you in Alaska?
In some cases, “drayage” (a word derived from the dray horse, once used for short-run cart hauling) is linked with FCL and LCL freight shipping, and moving containerized goods a short distance. It can also refer to charges for these short-run pickup and delivery services.
But at Royal Alaskan Movers, it means we cover every step of your freight and supply chain management needs. Moving cargo from overseas to Anchorage, and need pickup and delivery on both ends? Moving your goods from a warehouse in Juneau to a retailer in that same city? Royal Alaskan Movers takes you every step of the way. And the steps are often many…Read More
When your cargo arrives in an Alaskan terminal (seaport or airport), that’s typically only the start of the journey: it’s trucking those goods to their final destination that can create challenges.
Because 1) most businesses don’t have the teams and trucks to move cargo from the shipping yards to their places of business, and 2) for reliable short-run delivery and pickup, you want a freight partner with deep experience in short distance trucking in Alaska.
Drayage services in Alaska require local drivers who know how to best navigate the north, and safely transport your goods under what can often be hazardous driving conditions.
Royal Alaskan Movers uses local drivers with local know-how, to ensure timely, cost-effective, and secure transport of your goods, whether it’s FF&E, heavy equipment, or restock for retail outlets, we will pickup and deliver through the first and final miles, and every step in-between.
