As one of the largest intermodal service providers, Matson Logistics works with all Class 1 North American railroads to design and execute efficient and flexible programs for a broad base of shippers. Our expanded intermodal service connects virtually any point in North America, including Mexico and Canada.

How it Works

Matson Logistics partners with UP, NS, BNSF, KCS, FXE, CSX, CN, and CP providing a truly direct service into Mexico. Southbound shipments do not stop at the border for customs clearance; instead they move in-bond through the border, clearing customs at interior Mexico origins and destinations. The rail interchange between carriers at the border is seamless and ensures no delays due to ramp-to-ramp drayage.
