Seward Harbor is a cruise ship port and a small boat harbor. The large ships involved in auto transport do not dock at the harbor. Also, there are no cargo handling facilities and equipment at the port.
Fortunately, the Seward is accessible by road from the Port of Anchorage. It is 127 miles from Anchorage via the Alaska Route 1. Auto shippers transport cars from various ports in America or other ports around the world to the port of Anchorage which has auto cargo handling facilities. Then they transport the cars by road to Seward harbor.
Alternatively, you can meet your car at the Port of Anchorage and drive it to Seward Harbor. This option is cheaper because it reduces the shipping distance. Also, it is convenient as you will most likely land at an airport in Anchorage; the city is the most popular destination for most airlines flying to Alaska. Auto shippers use the same process when shipping from Seward Harbor.

Alaska does not share a border with any US state. The road routes between Alaska and the US have to pass through Canada. For example, the road route from Seattle, Washington, to Seward is 2,385 miles and passes through the Canadian Province of British Columbia, and Yukon Territory.
The distances involved when shipping from the US to Seward are huge and the weather conditions in Canada and Alaska can be quite harsh. Therefore, we always recommend enclosed car transport. We also use air ride suspension to keep your vehicle from chucking during the long ride to Seward.
