The steamship lines have announced their annual rate increase. It will be effective January 1, 2012. The increase represents an ocean increase of approximately 5.6% and an increase in the Terminal Handling Charge that equates to around $.05 per cube. These increases are extremely unfortunate. We do everything that we can to minimize the increase. Our letter to customers can be found by clicking here. Matson’s announcement is posted by clicking here.
Your sales person will have exact charges and will be in contact. Feel free to reach out to them if you have questions or concerns. Our web rates are up to date and any quote that you do online for a shipment date after 1/1 will reflect the correct charges.
