The Port of Anchorage sits in a strategic location for global commerce, fuel and cargo distribution, and military response. It is the only intermodal deep-water port in Alaska. We are fully operational year round, and located only a few miles away from one of the busiest cargo airports in the United States.
Safety & Security
The ultimate goal of the Safety and Health Program at the Port of Anchorage is, and shall remain, the total elimination and prevention of all occupational mishaps, injuries, illnesses, near misses, and exposures to hazardous conditions.
The Port of Anchorage maintains the highest level of security without disrupting cargo or personnel flow. All persons entering the port must have a government issued photo ID and be prepared to pass through a security screening facility.
The Port of Anchorage is an enterprise department under the Municipality of Anchorage. As an enterprise, the Port is distinguished from other types of municipal departments, largely because it creates enough revenue to support its operations along with paying certain annual fees to the municipality.
