Pasha Hawaii Resumes Cargo Operations After Receiving All Clear from US Coast Guard, Hawaii DoT

[ September 7, 2018   //   ]

Honolulu, HI-based Pasha Hawaii resumed operations at Pier 51 on August 28, with the arrival of its containership, Horizon Pacific. The vessel was the first to arrive in Honolulu Harbor after Pasha Hawaii received an all clear to resume cargo operations from the U.S. Coast Guard and Hawaii Department of Transportation, following the passage of Hurricane Lane over the Hawaiian Islands.

On Wednesday, August 22, the U.S. Coast Guard granted temporary approval for Horizon Pacific to dock at Pier 51, allowing limited discharge of the ship’s cargo. The partial discharge was done to expedite cargo availability and delivery once the storm passed. Since Wednesday, Horizon Pacific has remained offshore in a safe location, minimizing the vessel’s return time to Honolulu Harbor. After the remaining containers have been offloaded, customer pickup and delivery will resume on Sunday, reinstating Hawaii’s vital supply chain to stores and businesses.

“On behalf of Pasha Hawaii, we’d like to extend our sincere thanks to the U.S. Coast Guard and Hawaii Department of Transportation for their guidance and partnership in helping to not only keep our vessels and crew safe, but reopen the ports as quickly as possible,” said George Pasha, IV, President and CEO. “Their quick response has ensured the flow of goods can continue with minimal delay. I am also proud of our team members who have worked tirelessly to make sure we could get back on track in a timely manner.”
