Matson Navigation Company has been serving Hawaii since 1882 and is recognized throughout the state as the Islands’ premier ocean carrier.

Its famed passenger liners and Waikiki hotels were instrumental in the development of tourism in the beginning of the last century. In the 1950s, Matson revolutionized shipping services to Hawaii when it introduced containerization in the Pacific.
