We know how difficult it can be to quote Hawaii freight for your customers. The process can be time-consuming, ineffective, and you may shy away from offering your customers service to the islands. Finding a carrier and a price that meets your margin requirements for each link of the supply chain is often 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 a shipment’s journey – from origin to destination.

Approved will provide you with a simple class-based rate to and from any zip code on the Mainland U.S. and Hawaii.  As an asset-based provider, we control our costs and offer logistics companies more savings than the competition. You’ll always know exactly what you will be paying before booking a shipment. With more predictable prices you can plan smarter, protect your bottom line, and offer top-notch service to your existing customer base.

Simplicity for Hawaii Shipping

A Single Rate That Covers Everything, 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 customers’ shipments for delivery on a schedule that works best for them.

Stop juggling multiple costs with multiple carriers.

Your Are Your Clients’ Expert

To further simplify the process, you’ll maintain your direct relationship with your client. Our team will send rates, notifications, and updates directly to you and your team. Our process is designed to remove the complexity traditionally associated with shipping to Hawaii. We’re here to provide the assistance you need to delight and fulfill the needs of your current client base. For the shipper – you are still their source for expert shipping advice.

Nothing changes for them – just more efficient service.
