Line Haul Tug and Barge
Originating out of Seattle and Seward, Bowhead Transport’s line-haul tug and barge service carries a variety of cargo including containerized freight, heavy equipment, vehicles, boats, modular camps, and just about anything else you can think of, into or out of mainline ports throughout Western Alaska and the North Slope. Whether you are mobilizing an entire project into a remote area of the Aleutians or simply shipping a vehicle to the North Slope, you can count on Bowhead Transport’s 38 years of experience providing exceptional service to Alaska.
Utilizing our fleet of vessels in conjunction with our line-haul tug and barge, we also provide cargo delivery to numerous outlying regional communities and remote, unimproved landing sites near each of our primary ports.
These outlying regions include: South East Alaska / South Central Alaska / The Alaska Peninsula / Aleutian Chain / Pribilof Islands / Bristol Bay / Nushagak River / Kuskokwim River / Yukon River / Western Alaska / Norton Sound / Kotzebue Sound / The Artic Region and The North Slope.
