Kapalama Container Terminal

Piers 41, 42, and 43 in Honolulu Harbor

About the Project

The Kapalama Container Terminal project (Piers 41, 42, and 43 in Honolulu Harbor) features an 84-acre cargo yard and 1,800 linear feet of new berthing space serving as the heart of the HMP and a critical component in addressing the severe congestion in the system’s hub. The new cargo yard will border the existing interisland cargo yard allowing approximately 50,000 truckloads per year to move directly between the facilities. This location removes these trucks from the adjacent highway and reduces congestion.

The Kapalama Container Terminal project will be constructed in two phases over a six-year period with an estimated project cost of $555 million. The completion of this project is targeted for January 2024.
