Seward is a melting pot of Alaska business. When considering how Seward fits into the state’s economic growth and where, in particular, it stands out, it is important to contemplate the history and future of industry and commerce in the area. Seward has top notch recreational sailing and fisheries harbor facilities. Its future in heavy marine traffic and related industry is assured with expansion of the Alaska Railroad docks and upcoming enclosure of the Seward Marine Industrial Center breakwater basin.

Seward has been the shipping gateway to Southcentral Alaska for over a hundred years, although that fact sometimes escapes attention in the flood of influence from higher powered economies. However, other ports have hit the wall of their limitations, whether it be developmental costs, capacity or seasonal accessibility, while Seward’s advantages are all too obvious. With an engaged business community, a professional, committed and collegial civil government and the support of the public, Seward is open for business.
