If you’re moving a high volume of product to and from Hawaii, you know the process for quoting can be time consuming and ineffective. Often, the complexity of finding a carrier and an affordable price for each link in the supply chain is cost-prohibitive – rendering Hawaii an often overlooked and undervalued lane.

With Approved Freight’s through rate tariff, you’ll get one great rate – for every leg of your shipment’s journey – from origin to destination.

Approved will provide you with a simple class-based rate to and from any zip code Mainland U.S. and Hawaii.  Plus, we’re the only Hawaii freight provider with teams and assets on all major islands; we never use agents. This allows us to control our costs and offer our clients more savings than the competition. You’ll always know exactly what you will be paying before you ship. With more predictable prices you can plan smarter and protect your bottom line

Simplicity for Hawaii Shipping

A Single Rate – Door-to-Door

From origin to final destination, our simple rates cover it all. We perform LTL over-the-road transport from origin to our safe and secure facility in Los Angeles, CA. Once here, we’ll perform less-than-container load (LCL) consolidations, and ready your shipment for ocean travel. Once your goods arrive at the destination port, our teams of drivers will perform drayage to our facilities on-island. Finally, we’ll offload and prep your shipment for delivery on a schedule that works for you.

Stop juggling multiple costs with multiple carriers.

32% Reduction in Transit Time

Our twice-weekly sailings boast some of the fastest transit times in the industry. We’ve helped enterprise clients cut their transit times from 24 days to 15 – around 37.5% faster than their previous provider. This reduction in time helps shippers meet the demands of consumers and build a more efficient supply chain.

Keep your inventory stocked and your customers delighted.
