Shipping Cars To or From Port of Prudhoe Bay, Alaska
A-1 Auto Transport Inc. serves all 50 states of the US, including the state of Alaska. The state is often marginalized in nature. But we pride ourselves in offering the best car shipping services to our clients in Alaska. We use all the resources available to us to offer the best services possible. The dense road network in Alaska offers accessibility to all corners of the state of Alaska. This allows us to access the sea ports with the facilities and resources to handle car shipping services in bulk. Alaska, being the northernmost state of the US, is characterized by cold temperatures and ice for most of the year. This makes it a tad harder for most car shipping companies to transport vehicles, but not for us. Among the ports that we rely on for importing and exporting vehicles into Alaska is the Port of Prudhoe Bay, Alaska.

Port of Prudhoe Bay, Alaska
The port is located on the North Slope Borough of the State of Alaska. It borders the Arctic Ocean which grants it access to Russian and Asian markets. Alaska has been a key point of entry into Northern America, and it therefore attracts foreign traders and car manufacturers who need to operate through its ports. For this reason, a substantial number of car manufacturers exporting vehicles to western Canada target ports in Alaska, the Port of Prudhoe being a major recipient of these shipments. The port of Prudhoe Bay is also a port of interest for exporting vehicles out of Alaska. Thanks to this high demand of port services for car shipping, we offer the services of shipping cars to or from Port of Prudhoe Bay, Alaska.
History of the Port
The port of Prudhoe Bay started of thanks to the Prudhoe Bay oil field that was, and still is, the main source of income in Alaska. The oil field generated high incomes as the mining expanded. Alaska then started exporting the oil to international markets and that was the genesis of the town-named ‘port of Prudhoe Bay’. The port also started facilitating tourism in the region. Over the years, the port has been slowly expanding. It is today the unofficial northern terminus of the Pan-American Highway, an asset in itself as it facilitates shipping cars to or from Port of Prudhoe Bay, Alaska. The northern terminus status promotes accessibility to and from the port, which invites car shipments from as far as western Canada.
The port is serviced by deep water harbors thanks to the Arctic Ocean’s deep sea floor. This allows heavy and large cargo vessels to dock just by the harbor. Loading and offloading of vehicles during shipment is also made efficient.
The dock is also equipped with cranes, RoRo equipment, as well as loaders and off loaders to facilitate both containerized and Ro-Ro car shipping.
