(MatNav), a wholly-owned subsidiary of the company. MatNav is an asset-based business that provides a lifeline of ocean freight transportation services to the island economies of Hawaii, Guam, and Micronesia; and also operates a premium, expedited service from China to Long Beach, California. The company provides ocean services to various islands in the South Pacific, including New Zealand, Fiji, Samoa, American Samoa, Tonga, and the Cook Islands, and later expanded service to include Australia to the Solomon Islands, and Nauru. The company’s fleet consists of 18 owned and 3 chartered vessels, including containerships, combination container/roll-on/roll-off ships, and custom-designed barges. The company also provides container stevedoring, container equipment maintenance, and other terminal services for MatNav and other ocean carriers through Matson Terminals, Inc. (Matson Terminals), a wholly-owned subsidiary of MatNav, on the islands of Oahu, Hawaii, Maui and Kauai.

SSAT provides terminal and stevedoring services to various carriers at six terminal facilities on the U.S. West Coast, including to MatNav at various of those facilities. The company’s Hawaii service provides ocean freight services (lift-on/lift-off, roll-on/roll-off and conventional services) between the ports of Long Beach, Oakland, Seattle, and the major ports in Hawaii on the islands of Oahu, Kauai, Maui and Hawaii. Matson is the major carrier of ocean cargo between the U.S. West Coast and Hawaii.
