Matson Shipping time

Competitive sailing times on the China to Long Beach route: Xiamen to Long Beach 14 days, Ningbo to Long Beach 13 days, Shanghai to Long Beach 11 days. The biggest advantage of Matson Shipping is that it has its own exclusive docking station. There is no need to wait for the unloading of the container, and the container can be unloaded on the same day.

Matson Shipping has 2 routes: CLX, CLX+
Look at the route code. The code of the main ship of Matson is CLX, and the code of the overtime ship is CLX+.

Differences betweenCLX and CLX+

The CLX+ departed from Shanghai on Thursday to the Port of Long Beach on an 11-day voyage, and from Ningbo to the Port of Long Beach on a 13-day voyage.There is also a peak season overtime express, namely CCX. It takes 12 days for CCX to sail from Shanghai to Oakland Port, and it takes 14 days to sail from Ningbo to Oakland Port.

Generally, ships stop at Oakland Port for 2-3 days and leave, and then go directly to Long Beach Public Port, with a 1-day voyage. Because of the stopover in Auckland, the voyage between Shanghai and Long Beach will be 2-3 days longer than CCX and CLX+.

The transit time between the regular ship and the overtime ship will differ by about 4-6 working days. If there is not much requirement for the transit time of the goods, you can also choose the overtime ship of Matson. Of course, it is better if there are other shipping companies. The shipping channel is also optional.

Matson Shipping

The sailing dates vary:

Matson’s regular ships usually sail every Wednesday in Shanghai, and overtime ships usually sail on Thursdays. Generally speaking, they will sail for 11 days. The sailing time at Ningbo Port will be one day earlier, usually every Wednesday.

Prices vary

The timeliness of the regular ship of Matson Shipping is very fast. If it arrives in the west of the United States, it can be put into the warehouse within 9 working days. Of course, the price will be more expensive than the overtime ship.

There are other types of services of Matson Shipping, such as time-limited arrival, less than package. The price of compensation will also be a little more expensive than other types of services. Sellers who pursue the timeliness of goods transportation can consider this type of service.
