PacArctic anticipates Alaskan growth

March 13 - PacArctic Logistics will establish a monthly general cargo service between Port of Olympia, Washington, USA and Point MacKenzie, effective April 19.

Anchorage, Alaska headquartered full service and transportation provider PacArctic - a wholly owned subsidiary of Koniag Inc - operates as a domestic ocean common carrier out of the port of Olympia, Washington. It ships freight to Point MacKenzie before transporting the cargo onward into Alaska.

At Point MacKenzie, PacArctic operates a 230-ton crane capable of handling heavy project cargo and has access to approximately eight acres of storage space. It offers trans-loading, laydown, storage and other service relating to the transport and handling of project cargoes.

From Point MacKenzie, it can offer water, air freight, rail and trucking services.

"The schedule enables us to look ahead and book freight early," commented PacArctic president and chief executive, King Hufford III.

Hufford III is awaiting the completion of the Port MacKenzie Rail Extension project which will connect the port to the main line of Alaska Railroad Corp, near Houston and Willow. Once completed, PacArctic intends to install its own railhead to gain access to the spur.

"It will provide us with another economic way to move cargo through the Railbelt and Interior," Hufford III added.

A recently transported equipment and supplies to a remote Alaskan camp, which involved barging freight from the Pacific Northwest to Kodiac Island. PacArctic arranged more the 100 helicopter flights to deliver the equipment to the remote camp, each loaded with approximately 1.36 tonnes of cargo.
