Shipping from Hawaii to Mainland

Shipping from Hawaii to Mainland

DHX - Dependable Hawaiian Express, located in Honolulu on Oahu has been shipping eastbound from Hawaii to the US mainland for over 20 years. We have gained the expertise necessary to ensure our customers are happy with the type of eastbound service offerings as well as the quality of our services offered.

Our eastbound shipments represent a microcosm of the Hawaiian Islands: our ocean containers are loaded with “Made in Hawaii” products such as beer, barbecue sauces, coffee, clothes, water, etc. Shipping these products to the USA mainland allows the Hawaiian islands to spread Aloha throughout the Continental United States. Additionally, we also relocate the property of those moving to the mainland as well as the returning of retail merchandise being rejected or/and returned to the seller or a third party.

We offer twice weekly service from the outer Hawaiian islands to Oahu, where the goods/merchandise are transshipped to Oahu and then combined with those items starting the journey in Oahu to the mainland. The containers in Oahu are loaded weekly to come back to the continental United States. Our weekly service for Long Beach and Oakland (and if necessary Seattle) sails to the Port of Long Beach. Our Seattle barge service sails every other week. Freight shipped into Los Angeles and Seattle gets trucked to its ultimate consignee or picked up at our Rancho Dominguez facility, near Long Beach, by the consignee or their agent. The carrier used is dependent on the type of facility and equipment available to handle the goods that the consignee requires.

Because the goods are starting their trip within a state of the USA, there are no customs requirements for these goods to enter the continent.

We realize some customers are not in a rush for goods so we offer a slower, less expensive barge service to the Pacific Northwest. We also use this service to receive freight destined to Alaska as most customers’ shipping to Alaska are not in a rush, and generally choose this routing to Seattle ultimately for Alaska.

However, when a customer is really in a rush to get goods to the mainland, we offer to expedite a portion of their order via DGX Air and load the remaining part of the shipment into one of our weekly ocean containers.

We have dedicated eastbound coordinators on Oahu, Maui and in Kona whose customer service is second to none. DHX - Dependable Hawaiian Express is constantly finding solutions for both first-time shippers and our consistent, long-term customers.

We take pride in what we do, and we try to do it better than anyone else!

Warehousing and Distribution in California

Warehousing and Distribution in California

Creating efficient and effective warehousing and distribution systems is a critical initiative that is vital to logistics and supply chain management and the global economy at large. Warehousing helps to facilitate order fulfillment and make the delivery of goods at a faster rate possible. It also contributes to regulating the supply of goods, which serves to stabilize prices. However, this does not imply that faster delivery service is equivalent to better service. The warehousing industry provides additional benefits in the secure supervision of goods, allowing companies to minimize the risk of loss or damage through fire, theft or damage.

Over the years, the warehousing industry has been disrupted and has evolved beyond the regular storage of goods. The changing global conditions and digital technology introduced into the industry has necessitated an evolution into logistics and distribution as well, which incorporates labeling, sorting, picking, packaging, inventory control and tracking, and transport facilitation. For importers of large volume goods and heavyweight commodities, much of the transportation budget goes to the costs of drayage and port fees.

Warehouses which are critical parts of the overall supply chain are the locations where the goods are kept for safe storage, taking up both space and time (labor hours). Space and labor hours, in turn, are the bulk of the expenses that are incurred in warehousing and distribution. By developing mathematical and digital means to improve and develop the layout and operations of a warehouse, managers can significantly reduce labor costs associated with the distribution of goods, increase the utilization of warehouse space, and also improve the overall flow of a project.

Transloading is an important aspect in distribution that offers the benefit of rail freight economics while saving costs that could have been channeled into onsite infrastructure. This transloading process provides rail accessibility without substantial capital investment. Having more alternatives in supply chain transportation provides cost-effective access to new and vast sources of supply and market availability. When transloading is properly carried out, the different transport modes used can help shippers to increase supply chain velocity, reduce cycle times, effectively plan distribution to meet demand and reduce shipping costs. The times are paving the way for intermodal drayage. Shippers and warehouse owners and distributors have embraced this mode of transportation, especially for short distances, saving time, human resources and costs in the supply chain process.

Dependable Supply Chain Services offers bundled services to include asset based Harbor Drayage from all California Ports with overweight corridor accessibility and Warehousing & Distribution with facilities in Los Angeles, Carson, and San Leandro.
