Alaska Vessel Delay – Matson Tacoma 120N [Anchorage - Posted on 08.30.2019]


August 30, 2019

Dear Span Alaska Customer,

Matson Tacoma (MTC) is currently docked in Tacoma awaiting repairs, which we expect to be extensive. As a result, MTC 120N will not sail as scheduled today, Friday, August 30.

Span has secured minimal bookings on TOTE and will move as many containers on the Friday August 30th departure that will arrive in Anchorage on Sunday, September 1st.

The remaining containers that do not sail on TOTE will move on Matson Kodiak 123N departing Tacoma Wednesday, September 4.

Matson will activate reserve vessel Lihue to replace MTC, while under repair. Lihue 264N will sail in lieu of MTC 121N on Wednesday, September 11 to preserve pro forma schedule.

We apologize for any inconvenience caused by this delay. If you have any questions, please contact your account executive or our Customer Service at our following locations:

     • Auburn, Southeast Alaska: 800-857-7726

     • Anchorage, Kenai, Wasilla: 907-349-3606

     • Fairbanks: 907-451-1184

     • Kodiak: 907-486-8501

Thank you for your understanding during this delay.
