Hawaii Wharfage Increase

 In a continuing effort to fund a long-term harbor improvement program, Hawaii's Department of Transportation Harbors Division has announced a wharfage increase effective July 1, 2015.  Matson Navigation Company recently indicated they will pass the increase on to the shipping community effective with sailings on or after July 5, 2015.

 The increase will be applied by island and equipment size. As examples, Hawaii wharfage fees for a 40' (foot) container shipping from U.S. Mainland to Honolulu, Oahu will increase from $168.84 to $173.91 and a 40' container shipping from U.S. Mainland to any Neighbor Island will increase from the current $356.44 to $367.13.  The Less-than-Container load wharfage we charge will increase by a similar percentage, amounting to 1 cent ($0.01) per cubic foot.
