DHX - Dependable Hawaiian Express


Dear Valued Customer,
We at DAX-Dependable Alaskan Express regret to inform you that due to the recent fall storms around the Northwest, the storm drains are overwhelmed, limiting access around the Kent Terminal. Rest assured your goods are being kept safe and dry inside the warehouse.
The Kent Terminal will continue to operate and accept deliveries in trailers that can back up to the dock. However, the laydown yard is closed, so we can’t accept any flatbed cargo at this time. At present, we do not expect the regional flooding to delay or prevent your shipments from being loaded and departing for Alaska.

We will continue to monitor the situation and provide you with updates should delays in receiving flatbed loaded freight continue past next Sunday.

Should you have any additional questions, please contact your local office at 253-872-6599 or our Corporate Customer Service center at 800-488-4888, Ext. 2020, or email us at

Thank you for your patience and your business- we appreciate it!
