The company’s link to Hawaii reaches back to WW II when a Pasha operation in San Francisco offered storage and truckaway services to our troops as they were deployed to Hawaii. In early 1999, the company recognized the need to provide new and competitive service for the movement of rolling stock between the Pacific Coast and Hawaii, sparking the creation of Pasha Hawaii and the construction of its first vessel, the M/V Jean Anne.
Pasha's mission statement incorporates the company's values of Excellence, Honesty and Integrity, Innovation and Teamwork. The discovery process for meeting their automotive manufacturer customers' needs for Mainland/Hawaii transportation indicated Pasha would have to create a brand new service for that market. It took several years, and incorporated each of the company’s values, especially Teamwork. The result was the construction and launch of the Jean Anne in March of 2005. She is the first and only modern pure car/truck carrier ("PCTC") in this trade lane, and the only PCTC vessel built in the United States. Since its entry into the Hawaii/Mainland market, Pasha Hawaii has evolved a service strategy from one that focused on a single market segment into a primary transportation solution for a diverse group of clients.
The M/V Marjorie C, Pasha Hawaii's combination container/roll-on/roll-off ("ConRo") vessel, and Horizon's Hawaii trade-lane container ships joined the fleet in 2015, bringing increased service flexibility between Hawaii and the Mainland, along with a full range of ocean container capabilities. We are proud to now welcome MV George III and MV Janet Marie to our Hawaii service.
Shipping cars, motorcycles, boats, containers, oversize equipment and largo cargo requiring special handling, has never been so quick, easy or trouble-free.
"We talk to our customers. We listen to their concerns and develop appropriate solutions to meet their service requirements. We believe that this is the most powerful single technique we can use for planning a service strategy. By understanding our customers' values and business goals we can help them to meet the needs of their customers."
-George W. Pasha, IV, President and CEO, The Pasha Group.
