Matson to pass on Harbors Division fee increase

From Matson Navigation Company:

As many of you are aware, planning efforts to modernize Hawaii’s port facilities have been underway over the past several years.

As a state dependent on ocean transportation, Hawaii’s harbors provide vitally important share-use facilities for the movement of nearly all of the Islands’ cargo, as well as passenger vessels.

Hawaii’s Department of Transportation, Harbors Division, is implementing the fourth of several planned wharfage increases July 1, 2012.

As is our current practice, Matson passes on fees that are charged by Hawaii’s DOT, Harbors Division.

The increase will be applied by island and equipment size, as well as by commodity in some instances.

As one example, the Hawaii wharfage fee for a 40-foot container moving from the U.S. Mainland to Honolulu will increase from the current $136.62 to $150.28 on July 1.

The Hawaii wharfage fee for a 40-foot container moving from the U.S. Mainland to any neighbor island beyond Honolulu will increase from the current $236.86 to $273.80.

The increased fees will be published in Matson’s tariffs and become effective July 1, 2012.
