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 change their ocean fuel surcharges. The fuel surcharge for Hawaii will be
increased from 36% to 37.5%, for Guam/CNMI from 36.5% to 37.5%, and Micronesia will
remain the same at 41.5%, Effective September 16, 2018.
Because of this
increase in our underlying costs, we are changing the fuel surcharge charged to
you to reflect these adjustments, effective with sailings on or after September
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.
