The following changes will be in effect the week during the 4th of July holiday. Please plan accordingly.
All AFF terminals will be closed Tuesday, July 4th. Alaska and Hawaii deliveries will be very limited on July 4th, and must be made by special arrangement.
Because the 4th of July holiday falls on a Tuesday this year and the Bloody Thursday ILWU labor holiday falls on Wednesday, July 5th, both steamship lines serving Alaska will push the midweek sailing back one day to Thursday July 6th. With the Tacoma port terminals being closed on Tuesday and Wednesday, the amount of cargo that can be moved on the Thursday sailing is limited.
The American Fast Freight Terminal in Fife will be closed on Tuesday July 4th. The cut off for receiving cargo in Fife departing on the Thursday sailing is Wednesday at 5:00 PM. The terminals in Anchorage, Fairbanks, and Kenai will be working with limited staff on Tuesday July 4th to ensure that all open customers will receive their deliveries normally.
If you have any questions or concerns regarding your freight, please reach out to your transportation consultant or our customer service group at 800-642-6664
