Pickup and delivery, from port to port, and from door to door
When you’re transporting cargo to or from Hawaii, you often require every single type of freight service there is, from loading pallets into an ocean container, to unloading goods at the port, to transferring to warehouses and storefronts on the islands and mainland.
And where some freight companies can only take you as far as the ports, Royal Hawaiian Movers offers short-distance trucking services for both pickup and delivery of your goods, from your place of business to the shipping terminal where they’re loaded into containers, and vice-versa once you have arrived at your final destination.

When you’re looking for a freight and cargo transportation partner to address all your shipping needs, be sure they do just that: address ALL your shipping needs. Because while some Hawaiian moving companies are great at getting your goods from one port to another port, not all offer short-distance pickup and delivery service.

Drayage, a.k.a., short-distance pickup and delivery
Part of being a full-service trucking company servicing the remote Hawaiian islands means that no distance is a challenge. Royal Hawaiian Movers’ drayage services are ideal for businesses requiring cargo to be transported a short distance, e.g., from the port to their warehouse, or from a warehouse to a retail location or home.
Unless you’re a shipping professional with experience in container shipping, you’ve likely not heard the term “drayage” very often. It has its etymological origins in the dray horse, which was used to pull a loaded cart short distances, with both the weight of the cart’s goods and the distance traveled being subject to the physical limitations of the horse.
Contemporary use of the word is typically tied to container shipments, and how and where the goods are both picked up and delivered in short distances. It can also be used to refer to the charges incurred for short-distance pickup and delivery. Read More
