About Our Company


Since 1991, Approved Freight Forwarders has dedicated itself to the unique shipping needs of the Hawaii and Guam trades. We are a family-owned-and- operated company and the only freight forwarder in Hawaii to have its own trucks and warehouses on all four islands. We accommodate all types of commodities and all sizes of freight for both business and individual clients. Our highly trained logistics experts use advanced technology to tailor shipping solutions that fit your specific requirements. Because we hand-load your freight when needed, our damage and claims rate is one of the lowest in the industry.

At Approved Freight Forwarders, we work hard to ensure that your shipment arrives on time and intact, and we keep you updated every step of the way.
