Pasha Hawaii activates Maui disaster response efforts


Pasha Hawaii reports that its supply chain routes are fully operational as support efforts for Maui wildfire relief are underway. The company has enacted its Emergency Response Plan which includes prioritizing emergency rations, foodstuffs and medical supplies via available barge capacity to Maui and its direct vessel roll-on/roll-off service.

Pasha Hawaii is the main carrier serving Hawaii and operates two fixed-day direct vessel calls per week from the US West Coast into Honolulu, with twice weekly connections into Maui for the container business. The carrier also provides extensive roll-on/roll-off cargo service with direct mainline vessel calls into the port of Kahului ready to meet the demands of large equipment and emergency and support vehicles.

The MV Jean Anne has regular biweekly service and MV Marjorie C operates an as-needed inducement call into Maui.

The company is working with government agencies, customers and partners for the shipment of relief supplies in addition to coordinating shipments with non-profit organizations to Maui.

In support of Maui wildfire relief efforts, Pasha Hawaii presented the non-profit Hawaii Community Foundation (HCF) Maui Strong Fund with a $25,000 donation.

Pasha Hawaii is encouraging those interested in supporting the Maui communities to consider a monetary donation to HCF, which has set up a fund specifically to support the Maui communities affected by the wildfires. HCF will be applying 100% of the donations received to assist those in need.

Separately, the latest green container vessel to Pasha Hawaii’s fleet, the MV Janet Marie (pictured), made its inaugural call at the Port of Long Beach at the end of last month.
