From one carton through an entire barge load, Young Brothers services the full spectrum of cargo needs.

At Young Brothers, shippers are allowed to ship everything from pre-loaded equipment such as containers to less than container loads (LCL cargo). Available equipment types are described on the YB Equipment page. LCL cargo consists of two broad categories: palletized and unpalletized (also called “Mixed”).

Palletized Cargo

Palletized cargo consists of cargo secured to pallets and tendered as a unit. Reservations are NOT required for palletized cargo, and cargo is shipped based on space available on the barge.

Unpalletized, Mixed Cargo

Mixed cargo consists of individual boxes or items tendered to YB. These items may consist of furniture, equipment, boxes, household items, etc. Reservations are NOT required for mixed cargo, and cargo is shipped based on when the container is filled, as well as when space is available on the barge.

The United States Department of Transportation regulates the transportation of hazardous materials under Title 49 of the Code of Federal Regulations, Parts 100 to 185 (49 CFR 100-185). Hazardous materials are such items as explosives, compressed gases, flammable or combustible liquids of all kinds, flammable solids, oxidizers, poisons, radioactive materials, and corrosive materials.

These federal regulations hold the shipper (customer) responsible for the correct documentation, packaging, labeling, placarding, and marking of the hazardous cargo. Federal regulations require Young Brothers to screen shipments of hazardous materials for compliance with federal regulations.

To find out if a product is regulated as a hazardous material, look at the Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) for the product under the section titled “Transportation Information.” (You can get an MSDS from the product’s manufacturer, wholesaler, or distributor.)

Listed below are specific examples of hazardous material products. While these are the most common hazardous material products, there are still many others not included on this list.

Examples of Hazardous Materials (This list is not comprehensive. Please check 49 CFR Table 172.101, Appendix A and Appendix B):

To ship a hazardous material with Young Brothers, the customer must fill out a Young Brothers Hazardous Materials Shipping Certification form (along with the standard Young Brothers Bill of Lading required for non-containerized LCL cargo) and present it when tendering the cargo at the port of origin. This form is also available from the Customer Service Department in Honolulu, or from your local YB office on the neighbor islands. Information needed to fill out the YB Hazardous Materials Shipping Certification can be found in the MSDS section titled “Transportation Information.” Please make sure you and your agents are properly trained in accordance with 49 CFR 172.700 and can perform functions as described in 49 CFR Parts 172 for Shipping Papers, Marking, Labeling, and Placarding, and 49 CFR Part 173 for Packaging of hazmat cargo.

Young Brothers is required to reject any incorrect or incomplete shipping paper and accompanying cargo. We provide basic instructions on how to complete the Hazardous Materials Shipping Certification, but it is the shipper’s responsibility alone to make sure that the form and hazardous materials cargo tendered to Young Brothers is in compliance with 49 CFR 100-185.

Hazardous Waste

Hazardous Waste is a specific type of hazardous material. When shipping hazardous waste, a customer must furnish a completed “Uniform Hazardous Waste Manifest” along with the Young Brothers Hazardous Materials Shipping Certification, and Bill of Lading. Please obtain the Uniform Hazardous Waste Manifest from your hazardous waste generator or contractor. Please include Young Brothers’ EPA identification number (HIR000060046), along with the customer’s own EPA identification number, on the Uniform Hazardous Waste Manifest.

Non-Hazardous Waste

Used oil is not considered a “hazardous material,” but its transportation is regulated by the State of Hawaii, Department of Health. Therefore, all used oil shipments must be accompanied by a “Non-Hazardous Waste Manifest”, along with a Young Brothers Bill of Lading. Please obtain the Non-Hazardous Waste Manifest from your waste generator or contractor. Customers must include the following information on both the Non-Hazardous Waste Manifest, as well as on the Bill of Lading:

  1. YB’s EPA ID number (HIR000060046)
  2. YB’s Used Oil Permit number (UO-013-11); and
  3. Customer’s own EPA ID number.
