Northland Services provides common and contract carrier barge service between Seattle, Alaska and Hawaii. Founded in 1977, Northland Services provides common carrier and contract barge transportation services. While most of the cargo transported by Northland moves between Seattle and various points in Alaska and Hawaii, the company also has provided service to the South Pacific, the Far East and a number of Russian destinations. Though the company has built its reputation on common carrier service, Northland also provides specialized charter opportunities. Northland recommends clients book space on their ships, but if a Northland client s booking is not made in advance and space is available, the company will do its best to accommodate the client s shipment.
