Southeast Alaska Barge Service

Year-round, twice-weekly service

Southeast Alaska has no land-route link with either the Lower 48 or the rest of Alaska. Virtually everything comes in by water, including on Alaska Marine Lines’ barges. Alaska Marine Lines offers the convenience of twice-weekly barge service to Southeast Alaska. We are proud to provide reliable delivery to the communities of Juneau, Ketchikan, Petersburg, Sitka, Haines, Skagway, and Wrangell, as well as many others. Some say they can set their clocks by our timely barge arrivals.

Barge Service to Southeast Alaska
Loading equipment for delivery in Southeast Alaska

As a full-service marine transportation company, we move all types of cargo from necessities like groceries and cars to oversized machinery and other bulky materials for diverse projects in the mining, oil, and construction industries. Our fleet of equipment includes dry and refrigerated containers, all sizes of tugs and barges, and specialized pieces to accommodate the most complex cargo moves.

We believe in giving back to the communities where we do business. Alaska Marine Lines uses its equipment for good by delivering school buses to Alaska communities, potable drinking water in emergencies, and more. Our continuous barge sailings from Seattle to Southeast Alaska provide a dependable lifeline to residents and help keep businesses up and running, bringing essential supplies to our communities.
