What is MyConnect?

Affordable Package Forwarding to Alaska

The problem is that a lot of retailers don’t ship to Alaska. MyConnect is the solution.

MyConnect allows you to ship purchases from your favorite retailers to an address in the lower 48. From there, your packages get forwarded to a Carlile package pick-up terminal in Alaska that’s conveniently located near you. Then you just pick it up. It’s really that easy.

How MyConnect Ships to Alaska

Carlile MyConnect is the perfect solution when you need shipping to Alaska – even when your favorite retailer says shipping to Alaska can’t be done! With MyConnect you get a special Lower 48 shipping address to use for your purchases. This allows retailers to ship your items to Carlile’s Tacoma, WA terminal. Your shipments will then be forwarded to Alaska so you can pick them up at a Carlile terminal near you.
