Ocean Carriers Announce General Rate Increase For 2019 [Auburn – Posted on 11.02.2018]


November 1st, 2018

Dear Valued Customers,

Matson Lines has announced their annual General Rate Increase (GRI) increase. December 16th, Matson will increase rates 5.0%. Span Alaska and Midnight Sun will follow this GRI of 5.0% to Central Alaska (including Anchorage, Fairbanks, Wasilla, Kenai, Kodiak, and Dutch Harbor). This will also include all Midnight Sun Rates.

The ocean carriers annually evaluate their costs, specifically marine operations, trucking, terminal overhead, maintenance, and capital investments in vessels and equipment. This increase supports the additional cost of operations.

Additionally, 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!



Doug Martin,
Director of Pricing and Logistics
