Tracking Online is Easy:

Did you know you can track your Alaska shipments online? Our website allows you to track your shipments with just a few clicks at The website allows for a quick search by entering your FB (Freight Bill Number) and any PO’s and search. This works great for looking up one shipment at a time. The second option is more advanced and requires login credentials but allows you to track all your shipments. If you are interested in signing up for this service, reach out to your local representative or call our office for assistance.

Fuel Surcharge:

Due to the continued substantial increase in fuel prices, fuel-related surcharges will increase by one and a half percentage points, effective for sailings on or after Sunday, July 11, 2021. The fuel surcharge for Alaska service will be increased from 26.5% to 28%.

We will continue to monitor the fuel surcharges and adjust our fuel surcharges to you accordingly.
