TOTE: A Company With Focus

TOTE is the head of our Domestic Shipping operation, with Maritime liner services moving one-third of all cargo to Alaska’s Railbelt and one-fifth to Puerto Rico. TOTE Services, one of the oldest companies in the Saltchuk portfolio, provides leading ship management solutions to government, commercial and private ship owners. TOTE serves primarily Fortune 500 companies and regional freight consolidators.

Saltchuk’s Domestic Shipping Business

Saltchuk’s first company began what is now our largest line of business. In 2012, TOTE Maritime’s two domestic liner businesses, providing essential cargo services to Alaska and Puerto Rico, announced they would be the first in the U.S. to convert their fleet to operate on Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG). Our Domestic Shipping & Logistics companies’ rich history, exciting growth and innovation make it a constant source of pride for Saltchuk.
