Matson Navigation Company, Inc., headquartered in Honolulu, Hawaii, USA, is a listed company on the New York Stock Exchange. Since its establishment in 1882, Matson has been focusing on the transportation business in the Pacific market, not only providing important maritime transportation services between Hawaii, Alaska, Guam, Micronesia and various regions and countries in the South Pacific, but also operating a boutique express shipping service from China to California, USA for trans-Pacific container transportation.
Matson has exclusive terminals in all major ports on the west coast of the United States and enjoys a high reputation in the industry for its efficient and fast services.
Matson’s first trans-Pacific boutique CLX (China Long Beach Express) route started in February 2006, calling at Ningbo, Shanghai in turn, and then directly to Long Beach, Hawaii, Honolulu, Guam and Okinawa. The whole journey from Shanghai to Long Beach takes 10.5 days. After the ship arrives at Long Beach Port, the goods can be conveniently picked up at the yard outside the port area the next day, creating a new concept of “fast and punctual” in the industry.
Matson China has expanded its service scope to Xiamen, Yantian, Pearl River Delta, Hong Kong, Southeast Asia and other countries and regions through cooperative branch companies. At present, Matson has its own companies and branches in Shanghai, Ningbo, Xiamen, Shenzhen and Hong Kong.
