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 change their ocean fuel surcharges. The fuel surcharge for Hawaii and Guam/CNMI services will be increased from 37.5% to 40%, and will increase for Micronesia from  41.5% to 44%, effective November 18, 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 November, 18, 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.
