Young Brothers opposes PUC ruling on Pasha Hawaii Transport

HONOLULU (AP) - Inter-island cargo carrier Young Brothers Ltd. has come out against a state Public Utilities Commission ruling that granted Pasha Hawaii Transport Lines permission to carry cargo through the islands on an interim basis. Young Brothers said Tuesday that it will file a motion for reconsideration next week.

The company says it will asking the PUC to reconsider the decision's impact to the state and to Young Brothers and the application of state law which is designed to prevent loss of services to consumers.

Young Brothers President Glenn Hong says Pasha is being held to "a lesser set of rules and service expectations," while his company is required to deliver to "a much higher standard of service and frequency."
