You might want to ask him how he is able to get around the restrictions Canada has placed on food products brought across their border. Canada has the following restrictions on food products brought from the US into Canada:
  • Dairy products (such as cheese, butter or milk): 44 lbs/20 kilo, not to exceed $20 in value
  • Margarine and imitation butter products: 6.6 lbs/3 kilo
  • Eggs: 2 dozen
  • Meat, meat products, poultry or poultry products: 44 lbs/20 kilo
There are separate limits within this category as follows:
  • Turkey or turkey products: 1 whole turkey, or the 10 kilo of turkey products
  • Chicken, chicken products: 22 lbs/10 kilo chicken or chicken products
  • Meat products from cattle, bison, buffalo sheep or goat: 11 lbs/5 kilo
  • Fruit (temperate, such as those grown in Canada): generally prohibited*
  • Fruit (tropical): 550 lbs/250 kilo per person
  • Fruit and vegetables (dried, canned): 44 lb/20 kilo
Then there is the issue about getting back into the US from Canada, and the US is even stricter on food products allowed in the US.

You have been deceived. No business imports anything to Alaska via truck.

Freight to Alaska | Trucking to Alaska | Lynden Transport


About Lynden Transport: Trucking freight to Alaska since 1954

Lynden is a family of transportation and logistics companies built around a common goal – to develop long-term, mutually beneficial relationships with our clients. While most Lynden companies call Alaska and the Pacific Northwest home, the reach of our services extends around the globe.
Lynden Transport was the first of the Lynden companies, founded by Hank Jansen in 1947. In 1954, Lynden Transport pioneered trucking freight to Alaska over the Alcan Highway. Before Lynden drivers braved this treacherous route, air and ocean delivery was often the only option for Alaska residents. Lynden has now grown from delivering freight to Alaska to 17 companies serving the world via land, sea and air. More than 60 years later, Lynden Transport is still the trusted leader for trucking to Alaska. Its network of service centers and equipment fleet is the largest in Alaska and its service to, from and within the state is unrivaled.

I guess all those border food restrictions just disappear like magic, right? You must believe in the Tooth Fairy as well, I suppose.

Those restrictions have nothing to do with bonded cargo freight.

If there's a Walmart in Wasilla tell him to go check out the loading bay and see if there's fresh produce being unloaded from any of the trucks. Bet there is.

I would image it'd take quite a bit longer by barge, and not too many people like black bananas.

Produce is driven up by truck from the lower 48. It is just as fast as flying it up and a lot less expensive. The drivers, yes 2 per truck, drive non-stop.

I got a great recipe for Banana bread that uses overly ripe bananas...

But in general, I bet people prefer fresh, not quite ripe fruits and vegetables.
