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.
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,
