Shipping Consolidation

Company History

Founded in 1999, Global Freight Solutions (GFS) was established as a trucking company and consolidator based in Southern California for the Hawaiian Island Freight Association (HIFA) and Yhata, along with several other Hawaiian companies that needed to move product to and from the mainland.

In the first quarter of 2000, GFS branched out offering its Hawaiian-based clients national Less-than Truck Load (LTL) and Full Truck Load (FTL) services under the subsidiary Expressway Forwarding. In 2004, with the rising costs of fuel, GFS launched its direct westbound haul services in several major metropolitan areas, as well as an intermodal transport division, to help subsidize the high price of fuel.

GFS quickly transitioned the LTL and FTL division under the umbrella of Global Freight Solutions, re-envisioning Expressway Forwarding as a Hawaiian freight forwarder delivering services for non-HIFA members, paving the way for the launch of its national airfreight division.

With the national market proven to be such a success, GFS International was introduced, with services encompassing ocean transport, air, land, intermodal, destination warehousing and all associated logistics services in over 315 ports and airports, helping customers through customs inspections, executing required documentation and always delivering shipments on-time, in excellent condition around the globe. With the introduction of international custom consolidation services, GFS continued to offer more service with one phone call for international customers in over 150 countries.

Fast-forward to 2017 and beyond, GFS now has specialty transport and logistics divisions for high-volume and one-off markets that require industry expertise for efficient, cost-effective shipping and logistics services, such as:
