As a leader in Pacific shipping, Matson continues to strengthen its ocean transportation services for Hawaii, Alaska, Guam, Micronesia and the South Pacific. In the past decade, the Matson fleet has welcomed four newly-built containerships, all equipped with more fuel-efficient diesel engines, state-of-the-art shipboard technology and a number of “green” environmentally friendly design elements. It is truly a leader in the Pacific not only in shipping but also for the environment.
