Breaking Alert


Dear Valued Customer:


Matson Navigation Company (Matson) announced that due to a steady increase in fuel-related costs over the last 2 months, these costs have continued to outpace their projections. Accordingly, Matson will increase their ocean fuel surcharge by 2.5 percentage points. The fuel surcharge for Hawaii will be increased from 30% to 32.5%, for Guam/CNMI from 30.5% to 33%, and for Micronesia from 35.5% to 38%, all effective with sailings on or after Sunday, June 3, 2018.

Because of this increase in our underlying costs, we are changing the fuel surcharge charged to you to reflect this 2.5% adjustment, effective with sailings on or after Sunday, June3, 2018.


By making the above rate changes, 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 these changes will cause you.
