We offer extended cut off times for all of your shipping needs. As long as your order is received at our City of Industry, CA dock by noon the day prior to the sailing, we will make space available for loading.

To assist in planning and to confirm transit times, you can contact us at 800-533-4826, or email planning@approvedforwarders.com and one of our Ocean Consolidation Coordinators can walk you through the steps to ensure your freight is received on-island in time!

Vessels arrive at the port of Honolulu 5 days after departure. For example, Wednesday departures arrive on Sunday and Saturday departures arrive on Wednesday. We will have your freight unloaded and delivered 24-48 hours after the container is made available at the port.

WE OFFER WEEKLY SAILINGS FROM HAWAII TO THE CONTINENTAL U.S.

Call Customer Service at (800) 533-4826, and we will arrange to pick up your freight locally. You can also drop off your freight at one of our Hawaii Terminals. You must make a booking with our Customer Service department prior to delivering freight for eastbound movement.

If you have urgent freight arriving after the cutoff, please contact our customer support team at 866-899-5945 to notify them, and they will do their best to accommodate. Please be prepared with as much detail on the freight arriving, so we can reserve enough space on the vessel.
