Carlile's Shipping Schedules

We understand the challenges the come with shipping to Alaska. Whether you’re hauling hazmat materials from Florida to Alaska or shipping a car from Houston to Anchorage keeping you connected with your cargo is critical. Shipping schedule changes or delays may disrupt your freight delivery. We strive to schedule changes to a minimum. We also strive to announce every change in shipping and delivery along the way.
 
We list our sailing and highway shipping schedules, routes, and upcoming delivery changes below. These shipping schedules can be reviewed online, or downloaded as PDF’s for printing.
 
If you have additional questions on shipping schedules, please contact customer service.
 
Please note:
  • Additional Alaskan shipping routes may be available at various times throughout the year. When we add new delivery routes they can be found on our shipping calendars.
  • Carlile may augment shipping schedules during the holidays so that employees may enjoy additional time with their families. We will update you with the corrected shipping and delivery information. Please be prepared for changes in your shipments or delay in your freight.
  • All Alaskan shipping schedules are subject to change without notice and may vary due to weather, road closures, or other conditions beyond our control.
For the most up-to-date schedule or questions in regards to schedules and calendars, please contact customer service or your Carlile Account Representative.
