Different ocean shipping options for different business needs
Do you need FCL (full container loads) shipped? Less than container loads? We offer those options among many others, and always ensure that your cargo is kept safe and secure throughout every step.
We offer varied options within FCL shipping as well, including 20′ containers with a payload of 47,899 lbs., 40′ containers with a payload of 59,039 lbs., and 45′ containers with a payload of 64,050 lbs.
And we’re not going to make you pay for space you don’t need. If you don’t have a full container load, we can consolidate your cargo into a container with other goods headed to the same destination via LCL (less than full container loads) shipping options.
No matter the size of your payload, we will provide a custom fit, and ensure your timetables and business needs are completely met.
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.
