The History Channel’s season premiere of “Ice Road Truckers” on May 31 featured the Alaska truckers of Carlile Transportation Systems. The 2009 season focuses on the challenges faced on the Haul Road and the ice roads of the North Slope of Alaska.
The season opens by challenging the industry to deliver 6,000 loads of freight to the oil camps of Alaska’s North Slope in just 12 weeks. Tackling the 500-plus mile stretch from Fairbanks, AK to the remote outpost of Deadhorse, AK included unexpected weather, virtual whiteouts and treacherous terrain like the truckers have never seen before.
The Alaska chapter of Ice Road Truckers strongly emphasizes the importance of safety preparedness. Safety in the workplace is absolutely a priority and drives operation decisions at the core of our company.
Founded in 1980 by brothers John and Harry McDonald, Carlile is one of Alaska’s largest trucking companies. Carlile Transportation Systems is based in Anchorage, AK and has 675 employees. Carlile terminals serve Alaska from Anchorage, Fairbanks, Kenai, Kodiak, Prudhoe Bay/Deadhorse, Seward, Forest Lake MN, Tacoma and Fife WA, Houston TX and Edmonton Alberta.
