Matt Cox, Matson's President and Chief Executive Officer commented, "Continued strong Guam volume and an improved rate environment in our expedited China service led to a solid fourth quarter.  For the year, these same factors, and continuing volume strength out of China resulted in a satisfactory performance. Yet we believe we can do better."
