The Management and Associates of DHX – Dependable Hawaiian Express, Inc. (DHX) would like to thank all of our Customers for their business in 2015. Thank you for your support and partnership. We truly value your business!


Matson Navigation Company recently announced they will be increasing rates to and from Hawaii effective January 3, 2016. Westbound container load rates will increase by $225 and eastbound by $110. DHX will be adjusting our FCL ocean rates upward to reflect these increases with sailings on or after January 3rd.  LCL rates will also be changed accordingly. These adjustments reflect the direct pass through of ocean carriage related rate increases.


Additionally, due to the current transportation industry shortage of skilled drivers, we will be increasing our Los Angeles area pickup pricing by 4.9% and Oahu delivery rates by 5%, effective January 1, 2016. 


Should you have any questions, please contact your local Account Representative or contact one of our Customer Satisfaction Agents at our Corporate office at 1-800-488-4888, Ext. 2020.


Again, thank you for your support and understanding of these changes.


Best wishes to you and your loved ones for a Happy Holiday Season and a prosperous 2016!
