Pasha Hawaii Transport Lines, which transports vehicles between Honolulu and San Diego, said today it will be increasing its fuel surcharge 5 percentage points to 41.5 percent from 36.5 percent, effective Feb. 26.
The move follows a similar increase that was announced on Friday by Matson Navigation Co. for its Hawaii-mainland routes. Matson boosted its surcharge to 45.5 percent from 40.5 percent.
Horizon Lines Inc. has not announced any fuel surcharge increase yet but typically follows Matson.
