Alaska Shipping FAQs

Choose Freedom Heavy Haul to haul your heavy equipment between Alaska and any other state in the union. The oi and gas industry is the economic engine of Alaska. More than 80% of the state’s revenue is derived from oil and gas. Shipping heavy drilling equipment in Alaska remains a thriving business. In fact, the state is awash in natural resources. Both the timber industry and the mining industry flourish in the state. There’s a great need in Alaska for shipping heavy logging machinery and heavy mining equipment throughout the state. The state invests nearly $2 billion each year in non-residential and residential construction. Nearly 15,000 people are employed with the nearly 2,500 construction companies in the state. Since new equipment is difficult and expensive to obtain in Alaska, the transportation of available heavy construction equipment in the state is crucial.
