Pasha Hawaii’s newly launched LA-Hawaii Express (LHX) vessel service provides the islands with increased frequency and more capacity to support the growing Hawaii economy.
The direct service offers two vessels that will call Los Angeles every Wednesday and will arrive in Honolulu every Sunday. The three-and-a-half day transit will enable shippers to fill orders on the mainland early in the week and have goods ready for a Monday morning delivery anywhere on Oahu. Barge connections link the LA-Hawaii Express service to all neighbouring islands with one to two days of additional transit.
The LA-Hawaii Express complements Pasha’s CA-Hawaii Express (CHX), which provides a weekly triangle service connecting Honolulu, Oakland, and Los Angeles. The Wednesday arrival of the CA-Hawaii Express in Honolulu enables local retailers to receive their products and stock their shelves ahead of weekend sales.
One of the vessels in the LA-Hawaii Express rotation is the newly built Marjorie C, a combination container and roll-on/roll-off vessel, with a capacity of 1,400 teu and the ability to accommodate automobiles and all sizes and types of rolling cargo.
In addition to the LA-Hawaii Express and the CA-Hawaii Express, Pasha Hawaii operates the m/v Jean Anne, a bi-weekly ro-ro vessel service between San Diego and Honolulu, Kahului and Hilo. The Jean Anne’s heavy-duty ramp design enables not only the transportation of automobiles, but also the transportation of oversize building materials, construction equipment, military equipment, and industrial and commercial rolling stock.
