New China – Long Beach Plus Service
Matson is pleased to introduce China – Long Beach Express Plus (CLX+), a second expedited weekly transpacific service. CLX+ complements the 14 years of uninterrupted service and reliability offered by our original China – Long Beach Express (CLX).
Like our industry leading China-Long Beach Express service, CLX+ is fast, reliable, and provides the same great service features.
CLX+ offers customers additional Matson capacity, and a second departure and arrival each week on a back-to-back schedule with CLX. To avoid LA-Long Beach port congestion, all CLX+ local cargo will be available on chassis at our Off-Dock Container Yard within 24 hours of ship arrival.

All Matson operations continue uninterrupted. All our ports remain open and Matson intends to maintain all service schedules as normal.
Matson is committed to taking all appropriate steps to ensure the continuation of services, including the deployment of reserve vessels if necessary to continue meeting the needs of our customers and communities. We are monitoring developments closely and ensuring compliance with all United States Coast Guard and local, federal and international government reporting and prevention directives at sea and ashore. We remain in frequent and regular communication with the United States Coast Guard and the port authorities throughout our Pacific network regarding commercial port operations in the interest of maintaining all our services and the continued reliable flow of goods to our communities.
