DHX - Dependable Hawaiian Express


Rate Changes

The following rate changes will be effective on the dates indicated:

Los Angeles Pickup Increase

Due to the current transportation industry shortage of skilled drivers, we will be increasing our Los Angeles area pickup pricing by 4.9%, effective January 1, 2016. Depending on the geographical area, drayage rates to/from the Harbor may see a higher increase, reflecting increases in our underlying costs.

Hawaii Ocean General Rate Increase

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 costs.

Oahu Delivery Increase

In order to continue providing service levels that our Customers have become accustomed to, our rising costs in Oahu labor and operating costs are causing us to announce a 5% increase in our trucking related rates, effective with deliveries on or after January 1, 2016.
