Philly Shipyard announced on Thursday that it will construct four new container vessels to service the U.S. Mainland-Hawaii trade route, which is currently only serviced by Pasha Hawaii and Matson, both based in Honolulu. Mike Hansen will discuss what this means, whether it's likely to happen, and how it fits in the Hawaii marine seascape.

Jay Fidell, President/CEO, Think Tech Hawaii, interviewed Make Hansen, President, Hawaii Shippers Council, on Monday, June 12, 2017, for their regular Community Matters program, which is broadcast weekdays during the 12:00 p.m. Noon hour. The interview is available on YouTube.

The title of this episode is “A third marine carrier in Hawaii,” and the discussion regards the announcement in a press release issued on Thursday, June 8, 2017, by Philly Shipyard Inc., that they would be building four containerships for the domestic Hawaii trade. The Philly Shipyard press release suggested that the four containerships would be operated in the Hawaii trade by a new enrant carrier and result in a third service in competition with the incumbent carriers, Matson Navigation Company Inc. and Pasha Hawaii Transport Line LLC.

Hansen describes in the interview the actual intentions of Philly Shipyard and how that might affect the common carrier – or liner container services – between the U.S. West Coast and Hawaii.
