Dear Valued Customer:
Matson Navigation Company “Matson”
announced that after OPEC’s November 2016 announcement curtailing oil
production, they will increase their ocean fuel surcharge by two (2) percentage
points. The fuel surcharge for Hawaii will be increased from 23% to 25%, for
Guam/CNMI from 23.5% to 25.5%, and for Micronesia from 28.5% to 30.5%, all
effective with sailings on or after Sunday, March 5, 2017.
Because of this increase in our
underlying costs, we are changing the fuel surcharge charged to you to reflect
this 2% adjustment, effective with sailings on or after Sunday, March 5, 2017.
By doing this, we are able to maintain our service levels as well as the
financial stability you would expect and want from your service provider. We
apologize for any inconvenience this change will cause you.
Should you have additional questions,
please contact your local representative or Customer Service at our corporate
office at 1-800-488-4888 or 1-310-537-2000,
