Hawaii Service Announcement: GRI Notification

December 1, 2020

Dear Valued Customer,

The water carriers serving Hawaii have announced rate increases affecting both westbound and eastbound shipments to and from Hawaii, noting the need to offset increasing costs of operations and investments in new equipment.

Also, the State of Hawaii may increase wharfage charges on July 1, 2021.

In addition to the above, trucking (lower 48 and Hawaii) and rail rates in the lower 48 and Hawaii continue to increase and be very volatile.

American Fast Freight (AFF) and Hawaiian Ocean Transport (HOT) remain committed to do everything within our control to provide reasonable and cost-effective ocean and trucking freight rates for our valued customers. However, based on these recently announced actions, we will have to pass these increases on to our customers. The adjusted rates will become effective with sailings after January 3, 2021.

We thank you for your business and continued support!

Hawaiian Ocean Transport, Inc.
A Subsidiary of Odyssey Logistics & Technology Corporation
