Matson and J.B. Hunt Transport Services Partner

Thursday, March 01, 2007
Matson Navigation Company (Matson), Matson Integrated Logistics (MIL), and J.B. Hunt Transport Services, Inc. are partnering in new guaranteed, expedited services from Ningbo and Shanghai to Long Beach and various U.S. inland destinations under a single invoice. With the new program, customers will have the option of benefiting from two new premium level service products. The first premium level service option will be offered by Matson and MIL and will guarantee the transit time and delivery of shipments to the West Coast and selected inland destinations. This service will provide Matson, MIL, and J.B. Hunt customers the opportunity to gain economies of scale on inland transportation costs by reducing the number of container/trailers that are moved to the final destination/inland point. By utilizing the J.B. Hunt 53-foot containers, customers will be able to consolidate cargo from ocean containers into a lesser number of domestic containers synchronized for carriage via expedited intermodal or over-the-road service.
