Matson Receives IT Initiative Award

Thursday, September 06, 2012

Matson Inc. wins 2012 CIO 100 award from CIO magazine for exemplified operational & strategic IT performance .

Ocean transportation and logistics company Matson wins the award a second time for its multi-year IT initiative, known as miLogistx, that was designed to support growth for its logistics subsidiary, Matson Logistics, Inc. 

Matson was one of four transportation companies honored this year, along with FedEx Corp., Amtrak and Old Dominion Freight Line.  Other recipients included AT&T Services, IBM, Intel, Pfizer, Procter & Gamble, Verizon Wireless and the U.S. Department of Transportation.

"Over the past decade, Matson Logistics had expanded through a combination of organic and acquisitive growth," said Peter Weis, vice president and chief information officer. "As a result, the company found itself needing to support four disparate and increasingly obsolete IT operating platforms.  With the miLogistx initiative, we successfully designed, developed and implemented our own internet-based logistics platform to support its 17,000 domestic vendors and 8,000 customers.

Weis added: Matson Logistics now has a single platform for its highway, intermodal and expedited (less-than-truckload) lines of business, and customers are able to view and analyze all key shipping documents through every stage of the shipment process in near real time.

Matson, Inc. is the parent company of Matson Navigation Company, Inc. (Matson).  Founded in 1882, Matson is one of the leading U.S. carriers in the Pacific.
