Our goal is to provide shipping services to the islands that lack convenient and affordable shipping solutions.
The Island Shipping Company specializes in shipping products from Hawaii to islands in the Pacific.
No matter the product, we will find a way to ship it to your location.

Currently, our client demographic includes the islands of Guam, the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana, the Marshall Islands, the Federated States of Micronesia (Pohnpei, Chuuk, Kosrae and Yap), and Palau.
In the future, we look to expand to other islands in the Pacific.

Freight Options

Shipping items from Hawaii to the Pacific islands has become easy. Its location makes Hawaii a critical and strategic freighting business partner for most Pacific islands. Our shipping options below specify each way we can send your product with cost and delivery in mind.  For more information, please contact us.

Air

  • The standard carrier for air shipments is the USPS. The USPS also offers expedited shipping where available for a reasonable cost. Other carriers such as Fedex, DHL, and UPS can be used if they provide their shipping services to the destined Pacific island.

Commercial Ship

  • For products that are not allowed on an airplane such as bulk or heavy items, the alternative is to send it by a commercial ship. We work with freight forwarders here in Hawaii to accommodate these requests. Bulk items can be shipped on a pallet or in a shipping container. See pallet or shipping container for more info.

Pallet

  • A pallet shipment means that the product will be strapped down to a pallet. This helps to prevent the product from falling over during the entire trip. Once the item is placed on a pallet and strapped down, it can be moved on the ship or inside a container. These vary and depend on the request of the customer. Prices may also vary.

Shipping Container

  • Usually ideal for bulky items or when the number of products being shipped is too many for standard shipping. It is useful for protecting the product from rain and sea water during its trip. For example, shipping a car. Shipping containers come in sizes that can accommodate the purpose of the shipper.
