Company Happenings

We would like to share some recent news from our DHX-Dependable Hawaiian Express blogs, with the below being a “cut and paste” effort from our website, and Facebook page(s):

We encourage you to visit our blog at to see our latest updates, progress, helpful hints, and shipping insights. Once there you can access links to our Facebook pages, with some of more noteworthy items being:


New Honolulu Warehouse - We’re building a new warehouse and distribution center in the heart of the industrial district in Honolulu. Visit our page to view the progress of the building project.


Beard for Buck$ - A campaign to help raise money for charity, that will help the homeless in Hawaii. So far we have earmarked over $17,000 for charity, including a donation from a customer for $25.00 a container for their 100 plus container project.  We estimate 4 more months until the completion of our new warehouse! You can see monthly updates regarding the current length of the beard, as we progress.


The 2 charities listed below, will be receiving 100% of all donations:

·       Kahauiki Village

·       The Salvation Army-Hawaiian and Pacific Islands…/beard-f…/c184542


We hope that you join us in this fun, yet charitable cause. #beardforbucks #honolulu #hawaii. Please feel free to donate to this worthy cause.


Just so you know, for a single donation of $10,000, Brad Dechter, the President of DHX-Dependable Hawaiian Express, and DGX (Dependable Global Express) is willing to dye his beard purple, one of the official colors of Dependable Supply Chain Services, for a month!

For $25,000 he will dye the beard and his hair, too! It’s all for a great cause, folks!


Should you have additional questions, please contact your local DGX office or representative, or call us at 888-488-4888 or at 310-669-8888.


We wish you and your loved ones a prosperous 2019.  May it be all of your best years yet!
