Founded in 1980 by brothers John and Harry McDonald, Carlile grew from just two tractors to one of Alaska’s largest trucking companies. In 1985, they made their first haul to Prudhoe on the Dalton Highway. In 2013, Carlile was inquired and became a part of the Saltchuk family of businesses. Today, 40 years later, Carlile has over 350 tractors and offers a full range of transportation and logistics services.

Carlile is based in Anchorage, AK, and employs 450 people. The wholly-owned terminals serve Alaska from Anchorage, Fairbanks, Kenai, Kodiak, Prudhoe Bay, and Seward, as well as Tacoma, WA, Houston, TX, and Edmonton, AB.
