Pasha Hawaii Transport Lines gets shipping OK

HONOLULU (AP) - The state Public Utilities Commission has granted Pasha Hawaii Transport Lines permission to carry cargo through the islands on an interim basis through 2013.

Monday's decision means Pasha may operate among the ports of Honolulu, Kahului, Hilo, Nawiliwili, Barbers Point and Pearl Harbor.

The commission found Pasha's proposed intrastate operations will foster competition and provide customers with a choice of water carriers.

In addition, the PUC says a second water carriers, in addition to Young Brothers Ltd, will minimize any potential harm or inconvenience to the public if existing services are disrupted.

The PUC and the state consumer advocate will evaluate the impact of Pasha's service on the inter-island shipping industry.
