Carlile History

Alaskan Roots, National Reach

Founded in 1980 by brothers John and Harry McDonald, Carlile has grown from two tractors to one of Alaska’s largest trucking companies.

Today, Carlile’s wholly-owned terminals serve Alaska from Anchorage, Fairbanks, Kenai, Kodiak, Prudhoe Bay and Seward, as well as Tacoma, WA, Houston, TX, and Edmonton, AB. 

Carlile is a proud member of the Saltchuk Family of Companies.
