Scheduled Common Carrier Service
We have year-round service to Southeast and Central Alaska as well as Hawaii, and seasonal service to Western Alaska ports and villages. More than 140 sailings depart annually from our Seattle terminal.
Contract Barge Services
Northland moves full barge-loads of freight on a charter basis when equipment availability and economic feasibility permit. For example, we've hauled charter cargo to Russia and Japan.
Northland handles every type of cargo, from general containerized freight to specialized machinery. By handling close to a million tons of containerized, breakbulk, bulk liquid and roll-on/roll-off cargo annually, we've been able to refine our stevedoring systems to achieve higher productivity and shorter vessel turn times.
Northland provides freight consolidation services for customers who require a central receiving location for cargo from different suppliers.
We provide both freeze and chill container service to Southeast Alaska ports and select Western Alaska destinations.
Oversize Cargo and Special Handling
We have the expertise and equipment necessary to efficiently move oversize cargoes safely and economically. We routinely ship everything from fishing boats and pre-manufactured housing to oil field modules and mining equipment. Please contact a Northland Customer Service Representative to discuss your cargo's special handling needs.
Our trained experts stay current with the various regulations affecting the transportation of hazardous cargo. Northland is prepared to move most types of hazardous materials allowable by the United States Coast Guard and local Fire Departments. Hazardous material shipments must be booked in advance of shipment. Please contact a Northland Customer Service Representative for assistance and information.
