Common Questions

It is critical to work with a carrier with experience handling all types of cargo to the North Slope with knowledge of terrain, geography and weather conditions. Try to find a provider with specialized equipment such as shallow-draft barges, PistenBully snowcats, and trucks with oversized and heavy hauling capabilities.

Shallow draft vessels feature a low hull or keel just below the waterline allowing for access to shallow waterways like tide flats and some areas in remote Western Alaska. Ramps are used to connect to shore from rivers or lakes to deliver heavy equipment, vehicles and supplies.

This is a specialized project and you will need a logistics partner who understands charters, specifically those who only haul cargo. The C-130 Hercules aircraft would be a good fit as the planes can service remote areas anywhere in the world. They can carry up to 48,000 pounds, fly as low as 100 feet and land on short, packed-earth, gravel or ice runways.
