DHX - Dependable Hawaiian Express
Hawaii, Guam, and Micronesia Ocean Fuel Surcharge
Matson Navigation Company ("Matson") announced
that they are raising their fuel surcharge by 1.5 percentage points, from 16.5%
to 18% for their Hawaii service, effective with sailings on or after July 10,
2016. Matson is also raising their fuel surcharge for Guam/CNMI and Micronesia
services by 1.5 percentage points. Guam will be increased from 17% to 18.5% and
Micronesia from 22% to 23.5%, effective July 10, 2016. As a result, we are
passing these surcharges on as a fuel surcharge that is charged to you based on
your ocean rates.
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 will continue to closely monitor the ocean carrier announcements
and will adjust the fuel surcharge as it changes.
Thank you for your understanding and support in this
