Breaking Alert


Dear Valued Customer,


We have been advised by Matson Navigation Company (“Matson”) the Lurline V029W was delayed arriving to the Oakland port. Despite efforts being made to catch up to schedule, the delay will impact her arrival and departure time out of the Long Beach port this Saturday, February 6. Matson is anticipating a 14 hour delay which will then result in her arrival to Honolulu Thursday, February 11. The island barge schedule will be adjusted accordingly. 


We are estimating a 24 hour delay for our island deliveries for shipments on the Lurline V029W as well as the following vessels the Maunawili V210W departing Oakland Tuesday, February 9 which is due in port Saturday, February 13 and the Manulani V168W departing Long Beach Wednesday, February 10 which is due in port Sunday, February 14. Because of the backlog of deliveries related to the Lurline, our deliveries on the latter vessels will be delayed by a day also. Our island trucking operations will do everything in their power to expedite the handling of your shipments and to minimize the delay as much as possible.

We will continue to monitor any developments and update you as needed.
