COVID-19 OPERATIONAL UPDATE – 23 March 2020

SPAN ALASKA Fully Operational During “Hunker Down” Anchorage Emergency Order


Span Alaska’s service and operations remain uninterrupted to the community of Anchorage and the State of Alaska.

Span Alaska is considered a “Critical Business” providing essential shipping and trucking services, and is therefore exempt from the Anchorage Emergency Order. We are maintaining full operations at our offices and facilities. As part of a federally designated “Critical Infrastructure Industry,” we have a special responsibility to maintain normal work schedules to the best of our ability.

Span Alaska’s priority is the safety of our workforce, our customers, and the vital cargo entrusted to us for successful delivery throughout Alaska. Our drivers are practicing enhanced hygiene techniques while on the road, and have been trained to maintain appropriate physical distance from others during pickups and deliveries.

Matson, our ocean service provider (and parent company), continues to operate its northbound and southbound vessel schedules without interruption. These include the twice-weekly service between Tacoma and Anchorage.


Please Notify Us Immediately if Your Business is Impacted by the “Hunker Down” Emergency Order

If the emergency order impacts your business and you are expecting a delivery from Span Alaska, please contact your Account Executive or our Customer Service department immediately. It is critical that we confirm the delivery time for your consigned cargo, as our operations must remain fluid to keep all cargo moving, especially emergency aid items.

Span Alaska services are vital to the state of Alaska. Thank you for the confidence you place in us.
