DHX - Dependable Hawaiian Express
Matson Navigation Company (Matson)
announced that due to a steady increase in fuel related costs over the last 11
months, these costs have continued to outpace their projections. Accordingly,
Matson has recently increased their ocean fuel surcharge by 2.25 percentage
points. The fuel surcharge for Hawaii increased from 25% to 27.25%, for
Guam/CNMI from 25.5% to 27.75%, and for Micronesia from 30.5% to 32.75%, all
effective with sailings on or after Sunday, April 16, 2017.
Because of this increase in our
underlying costs, we are changing the fuel surcharge charged to you to reflect
this 2.25% adjustment, effective with sailings on or after Sunday, April 16,
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
