SmartKargo announced that Hawaiian Airlines is its first customer in the Western Hemisphere.

“We are delighted to partner with SmartKargo as we continue to build our cargo business,” said Tim Strauss, Hawaiian’s vice president-Cargo. “Our cargo revenues have more than doubled over the past three years, and we believe that SmartKargo’s 100 per cent Cloud solution, robust, shipper-to-receiver functionality, and ease of use will help us grow the business further beginning this spring. Enhanced tools such as SmartKargo’s customs and AMS module; 100 per cent paperless AWBs, single screen data entry; user-configurable business intelligence reporting; and mobile functionality from day one means we will be able to deliver Hawaiian aloha with an improved customer and employee experience.”

Hawaiian operates a fleet of 19 Airbus A330-200 and 10 Boeing 767-300 aircraft for long-range services throughout the Pacific, and 18 Boeing 717 and three ATR-42 for flights within the state of Hawai’i. The carrier offers non-stop service to Hawai‘i from more US gateway cities (11) than any other airline, along with service from Japan, South Korea, China, Australia, New Zealand, American Samoa and Tahiti.

Hawaiian also provides some 160 jet flights daily between six islands in the State of Hawai’i, with a total of more than 200 daily flights systemwide. Because the state is a collection of islands separated by expanses too wide to bridge, Hawaiian Airlines is essentially a “highway,” serving a pivotal role in delivering a wide array of goods across Hawai’i; and its expanding Pacific network means they fly a growing volume of essential imports and well-known Hawaiian exports.
