To Whom It May Concern:

FYI, I absolutely love this website. I hate the e-mails going back and forth for quoting smaller shipments, this is such an easy process. In fact, I’ve giving you more smaller orders just because it doesn’t justify my time to shop around. If I find cheaper freight quotes from other companies, the price difference doesn’t justify my time searching. You are becoming my one stop shop for LCL.

Kind Regards,

Katheryn Symington
Purchasing Manager


To Whom It May Concern:

Great customer service and can find great ways to save on shipping. As a full disclaimer, I recommend multiple quotes on every shipment, but if the prices are in the ballpark, these folks will provide service light years beyond others.

Sincerely,

Steve Haumschild

To Whom It May Concern:

May 2017

My sincerest congratulations to Dependable Hawaiian Express (DHX) for achieving a year-over-year reduction in carbon emissions at each of the five locations audited. Their commitment to annual emission measurement and reduction positions DHX as a transportation leader in the field of environmental sustainably.

In addition to participating in EPA’s SmartWay Program, Dependable Hawaiian Express also invests in an annual GreenWay Miles carbon audit allowing them to define their complete carbon footprint. SmartWay carbon emission data includes only fleet emissions. However, facility operations are a major contributor to any trucking company’s carbon footprint and DHX’s carbon audit captures and combines both fleet and facility emissions.

The audit calculated fleet and facility carbon emissions for each of their five locations and expressed results in terms of Total Tons of Carbon, Grams of Carbon per Total Mile and Grams of Carbon per Loaded Mile.

Included with the audit is a carbon calculator that converts loaded miles into grams of carbon per mile based on audit results. This allows shippers using DHX to calculate grams of carbon emissions for a single load or for an entire year’s worth of shipments.

In addition to providing a complete accounting of their carbon emissions, DHX’s investment in a greenhouse gas protocol audit also provides environmentally conscious shippers the ability to purchase carbon offsets* to offset emission levels or to ship freight on a carbon neutral basis.

This is DHX’s fifth GreenWay Miles carbon audit and we commend them for their continued commitment to providing shippers a complete, accurate and transparent metric of their carbon emissions and the ability to offset those emissions if desired.

Joe White
CEO, GreenWay Miles

* Carbon offsets are investments in projects that reduce carbon emissions. Examples include solar panels and windmills. Shippers wishing to offset their emissions should contact DHX for details.

To Whom It May Concern:

I just want to express how pleased and impressed I have been with the service I have received from DHX. From the very beginning everything was explained clearly leaving no question in my mind the level of exemplary service I would receive.

My local account executive, the office staff and even the delivery drivers are all extremely efficient and helpful. I even get notified when my products are being picked up at the dock and asked when a delivery can be set up.

I would recommend DHX to anyone needing to have merchandise picked up on the mainland and/or shipped to Hawaii. They even do storage and home deliveries.

THANK YOU DHX for being a wonderful freight forwarder.

With my warmest aloha.......

Dear Bill:

I wanted to take this opportunity to express my gratitude to you and the Honolulu DHX team for the consistent and reliable customer service that we’ve been taught to expect from you since the beginning of our partnering in the effort of serving the transportation needs of the Hawaii marketplace.

There are a number of “critical elements” that make a company successful in any endeavor, but the most important of these are the human resources that can be brought to bear to plan, coordinate, communicate, and solve problems. We always rely on our own staff to do this effectively, but it is such a bonus when we can find a service group like yours that can truly function as an extension of our own “ohana” in that effort. It simply makes all of our jobs easier, and it gives a sense of seamlessness and continuity to the product that we have on offer as a common carrier.

Please pass along our thanks to all concerned in the DHX group – not only on Oahu, but on Maui, the Big Island, and your contractors on Kauai. We couldn’t be where we are today without partners like you.

Yours Very Truly,

As has been our history, even though you’re in Los Angeles and we’re located in Hawaii, your working relationship with us has been very accommodating. You have always been there for us, willing to care for the needs of our company. In addition to the great service your company provides, you are one of the reasons we continue to use DHX for our ocean freight needs. It’s one thing to just deliver freight; entirely another to take care of clients when disputes arise.

Recently, when we had a dispute with a freight charge, you worked tirelessly to help to resolve our conflict. Other freight companies we’ve dealt with have simply dismissed our appeals and had an attitude that we should just “take it or leave it”. Not so in this case. And, not only this case but in all of our dealings with DHX personnel, everyone seems to have the same attitude, that of accommodating the client’s needs.

Thanks again for taking such great care of us! You represent a great company well.

Mahalo,

MT
Account Executive

Dear DHX - Dependable Hawaiian Express,


I have been a customer of DHX and The Dependable Companies for 16+ years!

The freight business is complex to say the least, there are literally many moving parts. I feel that it is unreasonable to expect absolute perfection. Most any freight company can get things right on a good day. The reason I am writing this is to explain why it is that our company actively chooses DHX as our strategic freight forwarder partner every day … simply put, it’s the quality of their people!

Over the many years we have tried other freight forwarding companies and some big national names too! But when there is a problem, can you trust in the person on the other end of the phone to have the experience to think a problem through, take action, and get results that you can count on, that your business and your own customers can rely on?

For us, DHX is big enough with locations where we need them around the globe, yet small enough to have quality people answer the phone where ever in the world we have called, be it all across the Pacific, Asia or any terminal in North America.

DHX helps our business to be profitable with rates and service that we count on every day!

Thank you DHX for your continued support!

Aloha,

Dear DHX - Dependable Hawaiian Express:

I want to draw your attention to the continued outstanding service the we receive from DHX - Dependable Hawaiian Express.

In particular Kanani Ortiz has provided consistently outstanding support, patience, and understanding through several large consolidations this past year and also in the current year.

We are currently consolidating for one model home, in Kona, which will be shipping Wednesday, and are starting the consolidation for three model homes on Maui, which will be shipped at the end of the month. We also would like to recognize and compliment Liani Aupiu for her knowledge and attention to detail.

She has saved us from several mistakes on the part of our shippers that would have been costly otherwise. You and I are both fortunate that we have these employees to support us.

Sincerely,

Ronald R.

To the Excellent People at Dependable Hawaiian Express,


Let me say that because of the direct contact I personally had with a MS. Vanessa Wilkins, we will be using DHX again in the future.

As a 55 y.o. attorney and businessman, both on the mainland and here in Hawaii, I can honestly state that I have NEVER experienced the level of politeness, caring attitude, and professionalism in any customer service representative, as that exhibited by Ms. Wilkins. From our first conversation and continuing with all subsequent contacts, Ms. Wilkins gave me the impression she genuinely cared about our situation regarding our shipment. Her calm demeanor and professional attitude kept me calm and provided me with a sense that your firm was doing all it could to locate our shipment.

Ms. Wilkins is one of those rare employees that quietly and effectively contribute so much to the customer service side of business. She is clearly an asset to your firm and she should be commended for her outstanding customer service.

My best wishes and Aloha to you and your customer service people, and in particular, Ms. Wilkins.

Kind regards,

J. G.
President
