Matson decreases Hawaii shipping fuel surcharge

By Associated Press

HONOLULU (AP) The largest shipping company that carries goods to Hawaii from the U.S. mainland is decreasing its fuel surcharge by 3.5 percentage points.

Matson Navigation Co. says effective Sunday the surcharge will go from 40 percent to 36.5 percent for Hawaii service. The company's last fuel surcharge adjustment was a decrease of 3.5 percentage points in May.

The company says the latest downward adjustment represents for most customers a reduction in shipping costs ranging from $80 to $140 per container.

Matson will continue to monitor fuel costs and adjust the surcharge accordingly.
