Breaking Alert



Dear Valued Customer,


Please note the following announcement from Matson Navigation Company regarding an advanced sailing of Mokihana 349W from the Port of Long Beach:


From Matson:

Matson remains in negotiations on new labor contracts with unions representing unlicensed crew on our ships serving Hawaii and Guam in Matson domestic trades.  The current contracts with these groups expire June 30 at 24:00 Pacific time.

Matson and the unions have worked together without interruption since the 1960s.  We remain cautiously optimistic about reaching a timely, fair, and equitable agreement once again.

Out of an abundance of caution and to provide certainty for our customers, Matson has decided to advance the sailing of Mokihana 349W.  Our new cut off and sailing time will be:

Cut off: Friday, 6/30 20:00
Sailing: Friday, 6/30 23:00


Because of this advanced sailing schedule, DHX will move the cut-off from our Rancho Dominguez facility to Friday, 6/30/17 at noon. We apologize for any inconvenience this change will cause you.


Should you have additional questions, please contact your local representative or call our corporate office at 1-800-488-4888 or 1-310-537-2000, ext. 2020.


Thank you for your business - we appreciate it!
