The Marine Exchange of Alaska’s (MXAK) initiatives, services and programs are funded by membership dues, fees for vessel tracking, consulting services provided and government grants. MXAK’s maritime advocacy efforts are directed towards minimizing the cost of complying with regulatory requirements while aiding safe, secure, efficient and environmentally responsible marine operations. Our 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, Operations Center, informational web site, newsletters, vessel tracking network and access are also partially funded by membership dues. Presently membership is comprised of almost all segments of the Alaska maritime community including ports, pilot organizations and various waterfront facilities, as well as operators of tugs and barges, cruise ships, passenger vessels, offshore supply vessels, fishing vessels, tankers and container ships.
