Sellers who choose Clippers have a shorter replenishment cycle and can better arrange warehousing and prepare for the promotional season. So what's the difference between the Matson Clipper and the Star Clipper? Check it out with AnExpress Freight.

Matson CLX Clipper Line was founded in February 2006, and Matson Jet CLX+ was added in 2020, mainly serving sellers in East and North China. It has built a maritime highway for the vast number of cross-border sellers in China and the United States by virtue of its special wharf in the Port of Long Beach, its unique 2 storage yards outside the port and the rapid pickup mode without appointment.
