Horizon Lines sets rate increase for Hawaii cargo

Horizon Lines sets rate increase for Hawaii cargo

   Horizon Lines LLC, a Jones Act container shipping and integrated logistics company, said it will file a general rate increase with the Surface Transportation Board to raise its ocean freight rates for the company's Hawaii service, effective Jan. 2.

   Westbound rates for shipments originating on the U.S. mainland from either port terminals or inland points served by truck will increase $125 per container. Rates for shipments originating on the U.S. mainland from inland points served by rail will increase $385 per container, Horizon Lines said in a statement.

   Eastbound rates for shipments originating in Hawaii to either U.S. mainland port terminals or inland points served by truck will increase $75 per container. Rates for shipments originating in Hawaii to inland points on the U.S. mainland served by rail will increase $335 per container.

   In addition, Horizon Lines will increase its terminal handling charge $60 per container for shipments to Hawaii and by $30 per container for shipments from Hawaii, also effective Jan. 2.

   'The ocean freight increases are necessary to offset increased barge and inland expenses, contractual labor costs, and increased capital spending to upgrade the company's container fleet and terminals,' Horizon Lines said.

   Based in Charlotte, N.C., Horizon Lines LLC operates 16 U.S.-flag vessels on routes linking the continental United States with Alaska, Hawaii, Guam and Puerto Rico.
