LOS ANGELES, Calif. (Nov. 18, 2020) -- Today, it was announced that two shipping families have come together.
DHX-Dependable Hawaiian Express, the leading ocean freight company serving Hawaii and Guam and Hawaiian Express Service (HES), one of the oldest and most respected ocean freight forwarders serving Hawaii, Alaska and Guam, have announced that they are combining their efforts to better serve the Hawaii, Alaska and Guam localities.
"Because of the similarity in cultures, we believed DHX-Dependable Hawaiian Express was a great fit for our existing customers and our employees," said Jeff Graham, the president of HES.
Joy Schaul, the co-owner of HES said "From HES's standpoint, It's a win/win. Our customers will see service levels as good as ours, and our people, partners and employees will be treated with both dignity and respect as they transition to the team at DHX-Dependable Hawaiian Express.”
Ron Massman, CEO of the Dependable Supply Chain Services organization stated that "This is a pathway for DHX-Dependable Hawaiian Express to grow our forwarding business group. The HES management people are extremely qualified and focused; they're experienced pros who will help us to expand our services into Alaska and the refrigerated business segments. Additionally, HES customers will add to our volumes and efficiencies to improve the use of our Island Terminals and Trucking Operations."
