NorthStar was formed in 2006 as the parent company of the petroleum line of business of Saltchuk Resources. Saltchuk is a privately-owned family of air cargo, marine services, energy distribution, domestic and international shipping and logistics companies headquartered in Seattle and operating throughout North America.
Saltchuk is values-driven with a long-term outlook and a vision of building a global transportation network through a family of companies where every employee would be proud for their children to work. As NorthStar looks into the future, its growth strategy is guided by the vision of leading the transition to lower carbon fuels on behalf of current customers and future generations. As a member of the Saltchuk family, we share a commitment to the remote locations in which our sister companies operate – Alaska, Hawaii and the Caribbean. When we explore growth opportunities we let our values drive our acquisition strategy and look for businesses with a shared culture of safety, integrity and ethics.
