Whether you’re looking to transport wind turbines, solar panels, construction equipment or any other kind of oversized items to Hawaii it’s imperative to find a logistics company with the knowledge and expertise to get the job done. But how do you go about choosing the best?
Unlike shipping within the Mainland, Hawaii presents a new set of challenges given its remote location in the Pacific Ocean, so settling on any old shipping company won’t do. In particular, be on the hunt for a shipping provider with a long history of transporting large items to the Hawaiian Islands as well as experience shipping similar types of items.
As a perfect example, at Global Freight Solutions (GFS) we work with a wide variety of companies in the renewable energy sector transporting oversized freight in the United States, to Hawaii and throughout the world and because of that we’ve learned how to carefully handle solar panels (along with wind turbines, etc.). We actually ship solar panels regularly to Hawaii, which help preserve the state’s natural beauty.
Aside from choosing a logistics company based on their track record and experience, also think about what happens once your shipment is on its way – do you have access to real-time tracking? How accurate is the arrival date?
