Breaking Alert


Dear Valued Customer:

We were informed by Matson Navigation Company (“Matson”) that the Samoana V.112W that encountered engine trouble en route from Honolulu to Papeete, Tahiti has completed its repair in Papeete. The Samoana is currently en route back to Honolulu for her next voyage.


In order to get on schedule with a two week spread between vessels, Samoana 113W will bypass Papeete this next voyage and proceed to Pago Pago, Apia, Nuku’alofa, and Christmas Island. All Papeete southbound loads will be delivered on the Liloa II 033W. Northbound loads booked to Samoana 112E will arrive Honolulu aboard the Liloa II 032E.


Should you have any questions, please contact your local representative or Customer Service at our corporate office at 1-888-488-4888 or (310) 669-8888 Ext# 1236.


Thank you in advance for your understanding with respect to these delays. We apologize for any inconvenience caused.
