Moving with Kodiak Transfer, Inc

I came to Kodiak in 1960 seeking employment as a commercial fisherman, having spent my childhood on the Lower Columbia River as a Commercial Salmon Gillnetter. I was a salmon and king crab fisherman during the 1960's and met and married my wife Peggy Ann in 1966. During that time I became involved with Kodiak Transfer Company. I worked as Manager for the company for a time until I was drafted into the US Army from the Alaska National Guard during the Vietnam conflict. Shortly after being discharged from the US Army, we returned to Kodiak (1969) and were able to purchase the company from the owner, Daniel Ennslin.
In the early 1970s, we played a large part in moving the US Navy upon the closing of the Naval Station on Kodiak and soon after we moved the US Coast Guard back into the same facilities. We incorporated the business in 1975. Shortly thereafter, we were able to acquire the present location and began construction of the terminal that exists today near the Kodiak State Airport and the beautiful Buskin River.
Around that time, we provided necessary assistance to several local business entities wishing a foothold in our island community by representing them and operating their local needs until they grew to a point where they could operate on their own and they are still in Kodiak to this day.
From the earliest time, my lovely wife Peggy, has been closely involved with details of Kodiak Transfer, Inc. and provided the bookkeeping and office management needed to operate and grow. This position lent itself to an ideal situation where she could look after our growing children, usually on premises where they took on small jobs aiding in the growth of the business while acquiring valuable life experiences.
Our children, daughter Karina, and son, Kirk & his wife, Karren, operate the business today and have further expanded KTI's work scope into the field of logistics and consulting.
We are very proud of our close working relationship still today with the US Coast Guard and many other long time customers as well. It has been a great ride!

For those earlier pictures with damages on the boxes. I share your sentiment and I am sorry this happen to your boxes.
Please remember to use ONLY IMEREX BOXES when shipping your items because they are a lot STRONGER QUALITY than the others , Can carry up to 220 lbs.
The POOR QUALITY which are NOT IMEREX boxes has a tendency of breaking down hence the tear on the sides which a lot of times items a falling out of the boxes.
when they are out for distribution in the Phils. Imerex Staff in Carson strapped them securely before loading them to Container to the Phils. When they arrived and unload these heavy boxes in IMEREX Manila Warehouse, they needed to be taped before they are delivered to the Receiver. . I havent had any problems with them.

To a great degree accommodating at the work area, after a long flight. Immediately clarified the "need to knows" for going in Ireland, all while giving extra tips on travel, eats, and celebrations. We truly making the most of our rental for the three week stay, and will run with Dooley once more. They were modest, and bother free.

I was going to my better half amid her entry level position in London and the driver I had take me once again from the air terminal was greatly amenable and a sheltered driver! My driver was Mr. Kiss, I trust his driver ID was CIBI and he is the reason I'm composing this survey. He arrived somewhat early however didn't have an issue holding up. He was a joy to converse with while in transit to the airplane terminal, got me to the air terminal on time, and was an incredible gentleman all around. Much thanks to you for the administration!

Similarly as the moving company goes they are anything but difficult to work with, supportive when you require it, and they have some extraordinary drivers!

I went here to make DvD duplicates. I experienced difficulty finding a spot that would simply do a couple, however KODIAK TRANSFER was willing to do a little measure of duplicates. They even pulled the photo off of my unique to engrave onto the duplicates. Their costs were exceptionally sensible. They were amicable and brief in getting my request wrapped up. They even called me as they found an inconsistency in what I had composed and needed to affirm what I needed on one of the DvD duplicates. Exceptionally suggested

Yet, in Japan theyare regulatedunder the Kei car laws, which allow vehicle owners a break in taxes for buying a small and less-powerful vehicle. Currently, the engineis limitedto 660 cc [0.66L] displacement. These vehicles beganbeing usedas on-road utility vehicles in Japan.Classified as a low speed vehicle, these Japanese-made mini truckswere manufacturedfor on-road use for competing the the off-road ATVs in the United States.

In 1938, the now-eliminated Interstate Commerce Commission (ICC) enforced the first Hours of Service (HOS) rules. Drivers became limited to 12 hours of work within a 15-hour period.At this time, work included loading, unloading, driving, handling freight, preparing reports, preparing vehicles for service, or performing any other duty in relation to the transportation of passengers or property.
The ICC intended for the 3-hour difference between 12 hours of work and 15 hours on-duty tobe usedfor meals and rest breaks.This meant that the weekly maxwas limitedto 60 hours over 7 days (non-dailydrivers), or 70 hours over 8 days (daily drivers). With these rules in place, it allowed 12 hours of work within a 15-hour period, 9 hours of rest, with 3 hours for breaks within a 24-hour day.


The FMCSA has established rules to maintain and regulate the safety of the trucking industry.According to FMCSA rules, driving a goods-carrying CMV more than 11 hours or to drive after having been on duty for 14 hours, is illegal.Due to such heavy driving, they need a break to complete other tasks such as loading and unloading cargo, stopping for gas and other required vehicle inspections, as well as non-working duties such as meal and rest breaks.The 3-hour difference between the 11-hour driving limit and 14 hour on-duty limit gives drivers time to take care of such duties.In addition, after completing an 11 to 14 hour on duty period, the driver muchbe allowed10 hours off-duty.

QuestionThe USDOT (USDOT or DOT)is considereda federal Cabinet department within the U.S. government.Clearly, this department concerns itself with all aspects of transportation with safety as a focal point.The DOT wasofficiallyestablished by an act of Congress on October 15, 1966, beginning its operation on April 1, 1967. Superior to the DOT, the United States Secretary of Transportation governs the department.The mission of the DOT is to "Serve the United States by ensuring a fast, safe, efficient, accessible, and convenient transportation system that meets our vital national interests and enhances the quality of life for the American people, today and into the future." Essentially thisstates how important it is to improve all types of transportation as a way to enhance both safety and life in general etc.It is important to note that the DOT is not in place to hurt businesses, but to improve our "vital national interests" and our "quality of life". The transportation networks are in definite need of such fundamental attention. Federal departments such as the USDOT are key to this industry by creating and enforcing regulations with intentions to increase the efficiency and safety of transportation.

QuestionThe Federal-Aid Highway Amendments of 1974 established a federalmaximum gross vehicle weight of 80,000 pounds (36,000 kg).It also introduced a sliding scale of truck weight-to-length ratios based on the bridge formula. Although, they did not establish a federalminimumweight limit.By failing to establish a federal regulation, six contiguous in the Mississippi Valley rebelled.Becoming known as the "barrier state", they refused to increase their Interstate weight limits to 80,000 pounds.Due to this, the trucking industry faced a barrier to efficient cross-country interstate commerce.
