Ocean Carriers Announce General Rate Increase For 2017 [Auburn – Posted on 11.11.2016]


Dear Valued Customers,

Matson Lines has announced their annual GRI increase for 2017. Matson’s increase will be 4.5% and become effective on December 11th. Span Alaska will follow this GRI of 4.5% to both the Central Alaska market (which include the cities of Anchorage, Fairbanks, Wasilla, Kenai, and Kodiak), and also to the Southeast Alaska market (which include the cities of Juneau, Ketchikan, and Sikta).

The ocean carriers annually evaluate their costs, specifically, marine operations, trucking, terminal overhead, maintenance and capital investments in vessels and equipment.

We at Span Alaska continue to invest in all aspects of our business to insure that we can provide our customers the best value for their transportation dollar. We look forward to continuing our tradition of “Promises Made, Promises Delivered!”

Thank you for your continued support!
