The Alaska Entertainment Industry Relies on Alaska Air Forwarding

Alaska has many beautiful coastal towns with miles of shorelines, wide-open spaces, dense forest land, glaciers, and beaches. This varied terrain has caught the eye of the film industry, giving Alaska the reputation of being a great place to film. This has paved the way for economic growth within Alaska and several other industries, including Alaska Air Forwarding. We can work on short notice and arrange to ship for last-minute projects. Additionally, we have many in-state connections that allow us to reach the more remote parts of Alaska that other freight companies cannot service.

As movie and television production companies have discovered Alaska, the State of Alaska has seized the opportunity and formed the Alaska Film Production Incentive Program.

This program was established with two goals in mind:

  1. To offer incentives to the film industry in the way of tax credits. Based on the information in an earlier AFPIP report, the tax incentive program has been very successful.
  2. To promote the State of Alaska. Therefore, the second goal for the AFPIP is to encourage the State of Alaska.

In addition to the support of the film and entertainment industry, we also support several other aspects of entertainment. Alaska is known for its scenic beauty, tourism, and cold winters. However, it can be easy to overlook the fact that there are three thriving metropolitan cities: Juneau, Fairbanks, and Anchorage. These three cities are host to concerts, conventions, and trade shows that require equipment to be shipped in and delivered to the various venues.

Alaska Air Forwarding has established a reputation as the shipping company to call when there is an urgent, last-minute need to move equipment quickly between sites. We are the perfect choice for supporting concerts, conventions, and trade shows in Alaska’s metropolitan areas.

We ship all types of film and entertainment industry supplies, including:

  • Lighting Kits
  • Boom Poles
  • Cameras of all sizes
  • Mics
  • Tripods needed for mounting cameras
  • Weather gear to protect the equipment
  • Any equipment needed for the shoot that would not be permitted on a commercial airline can be shipped through Alaska Air Forwarding.

Whatever the entertainment industry needs, we make sure they have it promptly. Call us at 800.426.0004 or get a quote online.
