Dear Valued Customers,

Due to changes by the underlying barge line, Span Alaska will follow their annual General Rate Increase (GRI) for the 2020 shipping season. On December 15th 2019, a GRI of 3.75% will become effective for Central Alaska (inclusive of Valdez and Cordova.) Additionally, passed on by the barge carrier is a booking fee on all full container loads. Span will implement this on January 12th 2020 as follows:

Northbound dry/non-temperature controlled cargo: $75 per container or platform
Northbound temperature controlled cargo: $100 per container
Northbound vehicle bookings, including roll-on/roll-off machinery: $25 per piece

Southbound dry/non-temperature controlled cargo: $20 per container or platform
Southbound temperature controlled cargo: $40 per container
Southbound vehicle bookings, including roll-on/roll-off machinery: $10 per piece

We at Span Alaska continue to invest in all aspects of our business to insure that we can provide our customers the best value for their transportation dollar. We look forward to continuing our tradition of “Promises Made, Promises Delivered!”

Thank you for your continued support!
