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 3.5 percentage points. The fuel surcharge for Hawaii
will be increased from 32.5% to 36 %, for Guam/CNMI from 33% to 36.5%, and for
Micronesia from 38% to 41.5%, all effective with sailings on or after Sunday
July, 15 2018.
Because of this increase in our
underlying costs, we are changing the fuel surcharge charged to you to reflect
this 3.5% adjustment, effective with sailings on or after Sunday July 15, 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, Ext. 2020.
