The statewide stay-at-home order that goes into effect at 12:01 a.m. Wednesday will not impact Matson operations, the company said Tuesday.

Matson and the services that support our operations are considered “essential businesses” that support critical transportation infrastructure, the company said.

Matson continues to operate all Hawaii, Alaska, Guam, and South Pacific service schedules without interruption.

“Ports are operating normally and we expect no disruptions at this time. Matson intends to maintain all service schedules as normal with three arrivals a week to Honolulu and twice a week calls to each neighbor island port,” a statement from the company reads. “Matson is committed to taking all appropriate steps to ensure the continuation of services, including the deployment of reserve vessels if necessary to meet the needs of our customers.”
