Barge transport

Weaver Brothers, Inc.: North to Alaska....


Weaver Bros., Inc. was founded in Oregon in 1946. Two brothers, Ken and Russ Weaver, brought their company to Valdez by Crowley barge in 1953. For the first couple of years they hauled asphalt during the summer, then drove their trucks back down the highway. In 1954 they bought a milk transport company in Fairbanks and began running Inland Riverway Barge Lines with one tug and one barge.

In 1955 the two brothers moved their main operations to Anchorage. By the mid-1970’s they had terminals in North Kenai, Anchorage, Fairbanks, Valdez, and Seattle.
