Breaking Alert


Dear Valued Customers:

We were informed by Matson Navigation Company (“Matson”) that as a result of severe weather they are making a number of adjustments to return to pro-forma schedule.


As part of their recovery plan, the Mahimahi V416W sailed directly from Seattle Monday morning, February 18, to arrive in Honolulu Saturday morning, February 23.

·  Guam and Okinawa cargo loaded to this vessel will connect in Honolulu to the Maunawili V170W.   

The Mahimahi V416W bypassed Oakland on Tuesday, February 19. As a result, we have moved certain freight booked to the Mahimahi V416W to sail Wednesday, February 20 out of Long Beach on the Maunawili V170W to minimize the delay to our customers.

·  Our remaining Guam and Okinawa cargo booked to Mahimahi V416W will load to the Matsonia V625W and will connect in Honolulu to the Maunawili V170W.
