As a result of the defense activities in the Hawaiian Islands, the port of Honolulu is being expanded, both by the construction of new piers and by extensions and repairs to existing facilities. There are 36 piers and wharves in use at the port, as compared with 28 in 1935 when Port Series Report No. 17, covering the Ports of the Territory of Hawaii, was compiled. The United States Government operates 8 piers and wharves, 3 of which have recently been leased from the Inter-Island Steam Navigation Co. for use by the United States Army Service. The Territory of Hawaii owns 13 piers, 12 of which it also operates, while 1 is used by the Inter-Island Steam Navigation Co. in connection with its interisland service. Four other piers, a total of 5 in all, are operated by the Inter-Island Steam Navigation Co., 2 for handling trans-Pacific and interisland freight, 1 for the transfer of interisland freight, 1 as a tanker discharge pier, and 1 in connection with a drydock. The facilities used for interisland freight include piers 28 and 29, which have been added to replace the 3 piers taken over by the Army Transport Service. An addition to pier 29 is now under construction which will make it a twin pier with berthing space for 2 vessels. The Oahu Railway & Land Co. owns 9 piers, 5 of which it operates as terminals for handling trans-Pacific freight, 1 as a tug repair base and 1 as a bulk cement wharf, while the other 2 are leased to private interests. One pier at the port is owned and operated by the Standard Oil Co. of California, and 1 is privately owned and operated.

Due to the increase in building activities, the harbor of Honolulu has been expanded to include Kapalama Basin and additional facilities are planned in this location. The existing facilities in this area are used for handling incoming fresh pineapples and outgoing freight.

A detailed description of the piers and wharves is given in the following table.
