Aloha Marine Lines Carries Heaviest Load to Hawaii

Aloha Marine Lines Voyage H0497W recently reached a major milestone when it moved its heaviest-ever load of cargo from Seattle to Hawaii.

The Namakani barge, which left in December was close to capacity with 691 picks and 1,032 TEUs, according to Aloha Marine Lines Seattle Service Center Manager Tom Crescenzi.

“We still have a little more tonnage we could get on board, but not much,” he revealed. “The barge capacity is 16,850 tons and the sailing carried 13,158 tons of cargo plus the weight of the containers, dunnage, etc.”v Hawaii-based Aloha Marine Lines, which is part of the Lynden family of companies, acquired two large barges from Sause Brothers in 2020, allowing for the capacity expansion, Lynden said.
