DHX-Dependable Hawaiian adds trucking unit
DHX-Dependable Hawaiian Express, a Hawaii-based neutral non-vessel-operating common carrier that provides ocean and air transportation and logistics services, has added a trucking operation on the island of Hawaii.
The new company is called Dependable Hawaiian Express-Big Island, Inc. It is headquartered in Kailua-Kona, the center of the tourist industry on the Big Island, and offers 'last mile' service from a depot in Kona.
Cargo to the Big Island is brought in by barge from Honolulu to Kona. The trucking service will handle both full containerload and less-than-containerload shipments. It will use 10 trucks per day to make deliveries throughout the island. Each customer will be telephoned beforehand to arrange a delivery by the trucking service.
DHX-Dependable Hawaiian Express has been operating in Hawaii for 25 years and services full containerloads and LCL shipments from any point in the United States. The company already has a trucking operation in place on the island of Oahu.
