These NTCL shipping containers are everywhere in town. They are usually loaded on boats.

(Note that this year, many western arctic communities did not get barges on time. In communities like Aklavik and Fort Good Hope, perishable goods were delivered by plane instead. So you could buy a turkey for $80 or something!)
