The cost to ship to Hawaii will vary depending on your needs. For ocean transport various factors will change your shipping cost:
- Less than Container Load (LCL) rates
- Full Container Load (FCL) rates
- The point of origin
- Which Hawaiian island
- The destination on that island
- Whether you want to use a reliable carrier with newer vessels vs. one with older vessels
- Will you be using a motorized carriage vs. a slower barge service
Air freight pricing differences will vary too including the freight origination, the destination island, the destination on the island, the expected time frame of the service, and more. All of these shipping variations will make a difference in how much it costs to ship to Hawaii.
