Re: Fuel Surcharge Increase - Hawaii / Guam / Micronesia
Dear Valued Customer:
Matson Navigation Company “Matson” announced that due to rising fuel prices over the past several months they will increase their ocean fuel surcharge by three (3) percentage points. The fuel surcharge for Hawaii will be increased from 20% to 23% for Guam/CNMI from 20.5% to 23.5%, and for Micronesia from 25.5% to 28.5%, all effective with sailings on or after Sunday, January 22, 2017.
Because of this increase in our underlying costs, we are changing the fuel surcharge charged to you to reflect this 3% adjustment, effective with sailings on or after Sunday, January 22, 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, Ext. 2020.
