South Pacific Service

In January 2013, Matson expanded its presence in the Pacific with a new South Pacific service. Matson’s service offerings include the core trade lanes from Auckland, New Zealand and Fiji to the island nations of Nauru, the Solomon Islands, Samoa, American Samoa, Cook Islands and Niue. In addition, Matson offers service from Australia to the Solomon Islands and Nauru as well as service from the U.S. West Coast and Hawaii to the Samoas.

Historically, Matson vessels, including both freighters and luxury passenger ships, served the South Pacific for five decades, beginning in the 1920s. The company is proud to have returned to the South Pacific and provide the same level of superior customer service and on-time delivery that has distinguished Matson as a leading carrier in the Pacific serving island economies for more than 130 years.

Our service is focused on providing reliable, on-time arrivals for these islands that rely on ocean transportation services to support their economies. We are committed to delivering the high level service that is synonymous with Matson in the Pacific.
