Seattle-based transport company Saltchuk Resources has acquired Alaskan trucking firm Carlile Transportation Systems.

Carlile will remain a standalone company headquartered in Anchorage. Carlile’s 700 employees will join Saltchuk’s national team of 5,500 persons.

“As with all of the Saltchuk companies, we will reinvest in Carlile’s assets, pursue growth opportunities and build on the very strong foundation the McDonald family has built for the future,” said Mark Tabbutt, chairman of Saltchuk.

Carlile will join Saltchuk’s TOTE logistics network in Alaska. The new addition will increase Saltchuk’s presence in cargo consolidation, warehousing, trucking and other logistics in North America. TOTE Logistics’ other operations include Florida-based Spectrum Logistics and Alta Logistics.
