Shipping from Colorado to Maine may be lofty, but there is no 1000-mile stretch of ocean to cross. Shipping from China to the United States (and vice versa) may require a lot of red tapes and customs organization, but there are well-cemented systems for this. Shipping from foreign soil has its own obstacles, including the limit of inventory that can be imported at an industry-wide level.
Shipping domestic across land and foreign is its own discussion. But, Shipping to Hawaii is a wholly separate entity. Unlike other forms of shipping, Shipping to Hawaii is both domestic and epic. It requires intense cube utilization and an overall chain of management that is incredibly specific.
Warehousing is a little different because the competitive nature of Hawaii shipping forces quick rotations. There is only so much product that can be shipped to Hawaii annually. The problem occurs when peak shipping numbers are reached. The competition runs high to maximize profits and achieve expected results. The issue is compounded due to the lack of space. In short, there are only a few receiving warehouses in the state. Whereas many states have multiple sources in rural and urban regions, Hawaii has only a handful of options near the airport.
This is why cube utilization (the management of space and the prioritizing of shipments) is such a delicate process. Half-load containers are also possible, which further complicates matters. Often times, the team will prioritize half-loads equally, measuring out shipments based solely on the time they came in. This offers an even playing field, appropriated to the weight of containers. Another major obstacle is the lack of active boats. Government limitations stipulate very specific requirements for shipping, which are unique to Hawaii.
