Hawaiian Ocean Transport

Island transportation with an Aloha spirit

Hawaiian Ocean Transport-webHawaiian Ocean Transport (HOT) has been providing less-than-container load (LCL) and full container load (FCL) service to the Hawaiian Islands and Guam for over 20 years. With HOT you’ll experience our “Aloha Spirit”, because we’re exclusively focused on transportation to and from the Hawaiian Islands and Guam, letting our people provide value added services to support your transportation programs. Whether you need a small single shipment delivered to the “Seven Pools” in Hana or to transport entire rooms full of furniture to a new Waikiki hotel in Honolulu, the island vibe is awaiting your move.

Coverage and service guarantee

Our container freight station is located in Honolulu on the island of Oahu, with satellite offices on each of the “neighbor” islands. HOT receives and loads terminals in Carson and San Leandro, California, and Fife, Washington, which serve the greater areas of Los Angeles, Oakland, and Seattle-Tacoma. We can receive cargo at any of our terminals, and through a network of contract motor carriers and our intermodal capabilities, we can arrange to pick up your cargo and move it to the most appropriate loading site from most cities in the United States. Transit time is four to seven days, depending on port of departure and final destination in the Hawaiian Islands. Service to Guam is available from both the ports of Long Beach and Oakland, California.

We are so sure of our “Aloha Spirit” service that we even guarantee your cargo will move on shipments from our Seattle-Tacoma terminal. Mahalo.
