OVERSIZE/FLATRACK CARGO: Aloha Freight has the skill, experience and heavy-lift equipment to properly load and secure material on flatracks and flatbeds. We take care of all services necessary such as securing over-size permits from cities and counties, as well as coordinating deliveries direct to job sites.

We operate our own fleet of trucks for pickup and delivery service throughout Southern California. In Hawaii we utilize an agent for all trucking services. Our Hawaii staff addresses the specific needs of our customers, provides sales support and coordinates with the delivery agents. In addition to local and regional direct service, we have partnerships throughout the country to handle your pickup or delivery. We have carefully chosen our partners to insure the highest level of service, reliability, and proper handling of your valuable cargo. To schedule a pickup, please call us, use our Pickup Form or email pickup.

Aloha Freight Forwarders has an 85,000 square foot warehouse with 10,000 to 30,000 square foot of warehouse space available at any one time at our Compton location near Los Angeles. We also have some limited space available in Honolulu for the storage of cargo. Storage can be full load, less-than-full load or by the pallet at competitive rates. We can maintain inventories and ledgers with online inventory access for our customers.

Aloha Freight provides transload service. We will transfer freight to or from over-the-road trailers and ocean containers. Shippers may terminate their containers in Los Angeles/Long Beach and we transload their goods into intermodal or highway equipment. The economies of this process are beneficial if you take into consideration the savings of additional charges by the steamship lines and the fact that the shipper can take advantage of the extra cubic feet in 48′ or 53′ trailers for the inland linehaul. We have the capacity to transload as many as 40 loads per day into outbound equipment as well as the ability to sort, segregate, palletize and shrink wrap. We also have heavy lift capacity of 25,000 lbs. Please contact us for competitive quotes.
