Matson Decreases Fuel Surcharge by One Percentage Point

October 17, 2006

As a result of recent declines in bunker fuel prices, Matson Navigation Company will lower its fuel surcharge in its Hawaii, Guam/CNMI and Micronesia services by one percentage point, from 19.75 percent to 18.75 percent, effective November 5, 2006.

"Bunker fuel prices continue to decrease, allowing us to make this second consecutive reduction to our fuel surcharge," said Dave Hoppes, senior vice president, ocean services. We will continue to monitor fuel costs and adjust the fuel surcharge accordingly. While fuel prices remain volatile, we are hopeful this current trend will continue."
