Transporting freight to, from, and within Alaska creates complex challenges — whether it’s trucking goods within a major metropolitan area such as Juneau, or shipping heavy equipment via air freight into the depths of the Alaskan bush.
For more than 40 years, businesses of all sizes have turned to Royal Alaskan Movers to solve these challenges. Our experience moving freight by land, sea, and air in between Alaska and the “lower 48” and the rest of the world is unequaled.
Want a more comprehensive and cost-effective plan of shipping freight to and from Alaska? Looking for a freight partner that goes past port to port service and can take your freight to its final points of distribution? Contact Royal Alaskan Movers.
Complete Freight Solutions
There’s no freight service too complex for Royal Alaskan Movers: port to port via an ocean liner? Check. Door-to-door service with both pick-up on the front-end and delivery on the back-end? Check. And no matter how far or near your cargo has to travel, it will be in the same hands from start to finish.
We’re proud to offer a complete mix of freight services to your customers, including:
- Trucking: over-the road freight transport made both simple and cost-effective; we’re completely equipped to move any cargo or equipment, from moving full container loads from Alaska to Atlanta, to short-run drayage services.
- Ocean Freight Services: Do you have multiple full container loads (FCL), or a less than container load (LCL)? Not sure which? Something else entirely? Let our experienced overseas cargo shipping experts create a custom ocean freight solution that meets your payload and budget.
- Air Freight: While it’s an ideal means of quickly getting cargo from point A to point B, air freight is also essential in Alaska (where some remote locations are only accessible by air). When you choose Royal Alaskan Movers for your air freight needs, you also benefit from a service provider that can address all other freight needs as well (such as storage and distribution).
What you need to know about life and living in Alaska
If you’re moving to Anchorage or Fairbanks (where a majority of military personnel are located), you’ll be pleased to know that you can expect the same basic amenities you would find in any major American city: lots of shops, restaurants, and more.
And the weather? While you may be picturing an endless field of snow and ice, Alaska weather is, in fact, milder than what you often encounter in a midwestern winter in the lower 48. Summers are simply beautiful, too, with temperatures rising into the 80s.Read More
One thing military families will want to plan for is long days in summer and long nights in winter. In Alaska, summer days often lack summer nights: areas in the far north can have summer days where the sun never sets; conversely, in the winter, there are “days” where the sun never rises. But these are only at the extreme points of each season.
The cost of living is roughly that of west coast living in the lower 48. Because while property may be cheaper to come by, many commodities must be shipped in, which can essentially even out the cost savings delivered by cheaper rents and lower mortgages.
