Hawaii Wharfage Increase
In a continuing effort to fund a
long-term harbor improvement program, Hawaii’s Department of Transportation
Harbors Division increased wharfage rates effective
July 1, 2015.
As a result, Matson Navigation Company passed the increase on to the
shipping community effective July 5, 2015. Accordingly, our rates were also
increased effective with sailings on or after July 5, 2015.
The increase was applied by island
and equipment size. As examples, Hawaii wharfage fees for a 40' (foot) container shipping from U.S. Mainland to Oahu (Honolulu)
increased from $168.84 to $173.91 and a 40' container shipping from U.S.
Mainland to any Neighbor Island increased from the current $356.44 to
$367.13. The LCL wharfage charge increased by a similar
percentage, amounting to 1 cent ($0.01) per cubic foot.
