Dear Valued Customers,
Tote Maritime has filed for a general rate increase of 4.75% with the Surface Transportation Board that will be effective November 11, 2018. Matson Navigation has filed for a general rate increase of 5.0% effective December 16, 2018.
Effective December 2, 2018: American Fast Freight will also be adjusting rate schedules and accessorial rates to accommodate the increased costs.
In addition to the water carrier increases, there have been significant increases to trucking and rail rates in the lower 48 due to previously implemented hours-of-service rule changes affecting drivers, driver shortages, and a general tightening of trucking capacity.
If you have questions, please contact your AFF Transportation Consultant or AFF Customer Service at (800) 642-6664.
Thank you for shipping with American Fast Freight!
