Only five days to Oahu, terminals on every major island
Two times a week, Approved sails direct from West Coast ports to ports on all the major Hawaiian islands: Honolulu-Oahu, Kahului-Maui, Kawaihae (Kona)-Hawaii, Hilo-Hawaii, and Nawiliwili-Kauai. We also provide weekly service from Hawaii to the mainland US.
Our five-day transit time to Oahu is comparable to deferred air-freight service but at a much lower rate. And because we’re the only carrier in the market with complete ownership of its Hawaii terminal operations (via Royal Hawaiian Movers), we’re able to reduce reliance on outside agencies, and pass those savings on to our customers.Read More
We’ll plan, load, store, deliver, and secure
Shipping cargo to and from Hawaii can be a complicated undertaking, but not for Approved. We have been simplifying and streamlining mainland-to-Hawaii freight transport for decades, taking cargo from our customers’ loading docks all the way through that final mile on the islands: no one know these moves better than Approved.
It starts with proper planning, a stage in which your moving needs will be assessed by one of our experienced, dedicated project managers. Next will come documentation detailing the entire scope of your move: Moving cargo in FCLs, or LCLs? Require storage? Need service from port to warehouse to outlet? It will all be there in easy-to-interpret language, and you’ll be working with the same team to create that plan and execute it, too.
And while delivering deep value and ensuring the integrity and timely delivery of your cargo is job number one, the security of your goods is equally important. Which is why all of our island terminals, and all of our storage facilities, are under lock and key, and equipped with high-definition cameras and digital video recording devices.
Every type of freight to, from, and across Hawaii
Relocating personnel or office equipment to Oahu? We do that. Shipping furniture, fixtures, and equipment (FF&E) to a hotel in Kauai? We have you covered. Moving heavy equipment to the heart of the jungle on the Big Island? We have done it before and can do it again. No matter what kind of cargo you need to move to or from Hawaii, Approved has the experience and expertise to make it happen.
- Office equipment moving services: We can take you from your old home office on the mainland to your new one on the islands, packing up, delivering, assembling, and installing desks, desktops, printers, and any and all business equipment.
- FF&E moving services: Renovations, refurbishments, relocations, even merely restocking, Approved delivers white-glove service to hotels and all businesses in the hospitality space.
- Heavy and/or medical equipment: Leave your largest moving needs to our expert shipping and installation teams: oversized equipment, medical devices, and more–we will get them to and from the islands securely and cost-effectively.
More than just freight shipping and logistics
Approved has decades of experience in meeting most every commercial cargo need there is… in Hawaii, on the mainland, and across the world.
Oftentimes, businesses moving cargo to and from the islands require more than just shipping containers to get the job done properly, and that’s where Approved can be a difference-maker and a money-saver.
By using the same company for every Hawaii freight shipping need — such as consolidation and deconsolidation of cargo before or after shipping, storage before or after, drayage from port to warehouse, and “final mile” delivery services — Approved customers both reduce costs and gain greater insight into where their cargo may be at any given moment.Read More
