Hawaii has huge supply difficulties by being a series of islands, and nearness to China can't solve that. Is it really all that much more expensive for a container ship to get to LA than it is to get to Honolulu? Any added expenses will be more than made up for by the fact that they'll unload the entire ship in LA.

Stopping in Hawaii means all the usual port crap and then having to continue elsewhere to unload the rest of the ship- while Hawaii cargo needs to be loaded onto at least one more ship to get to its final island.

I was thinking exactly that, more as a joke. But you make a compelling case.


We are operating at an overall mechanical efficiency of only four percent… Therefore, we find that if we increase the overall mechanical efficiency to only twelve percent we can take care of everybody. That three-fold increase in the overall efficiency can only be accomplished by redesign. – R. Buckminster Fuller
