We offer the following options for freight forwarding to, from, or within Hawaii and the mainland (click each for further details):

  • Trucking: pickup and delivery to/from a warehouse or storage facility to/from the port or airfield
  • Ocean: full container loads (FCL) — 20’, 40’, 45’ — and less than container loads (LCL): there’s no “one size fits all”

What our
Customers are saying

First, We Plan

There’s really no margin for error in freight forwarding to and from Hawaii: any delays in pickup and delivery can be ruinous for a business. Which is why our team spends as much effort on planning as we do executing.

Every customer enjoys a customized plan that properly sets expectations. And every customer may rest assured that, during execution of the plan, Royal Hawaiian Movers works day and night to meet or exceed those expectations.

Beyond freight forwarding: storage, drayage, and more

At Royal Hawaiian Movers, our freight forwarding services are about far more than just packing up, transporting, and dropping off your cargo.

Ecological Diversity Can Mean
Logistical Adversity

Each Hawaiian Island has a singular natural splendor, which can mean
singular geographic and logistical hurdles.

Moving to Oahu

Oahu, “the gathering place,” is the most populated of the islands. And while that means it has many mainland amenities, it also means mainland liabilities, such as traffic and construction.

Moving to Maui

Maui, “the valley island,” has more geological variance than Oahu: moving to or from upcountry Maui requires an entirely different approach than a move to the Hana Highway area. Our movers understand these variances, and are completely equipped to address them all.

Moving to Kauai

Kauai, “the garden island,” with its population living almost exclusively in coastal towns, can present challenges in efficient travel along its one-lane roadways, and much more so should you move further inland.  Learn more

Moving to the Big Island (Hilo and Kona)

The Big Island, Hawai’i. While perhaps the most affordable of the Hawaiian Islands, the Big Island has challenges in that its residences and business centers are also spread across the Island.
