Please be advised, TOTE Maritime Alaska is increasing the fuel surcharge to Alaska. Please see the official notification below:
TOTE Maritime Alaska has filed to increase its ocean fuel surcharge as published in tariff STB TOTE 101-A as follows:
Tariff Item 345 will increase 4% from 22% to 26% effective Sunday, October 1, 2017.
TOTE Maritime Alaska has experienced significant cost increases particularly in the distillate components of the vessel fuel required to meet low-Sulphur standards as dictated by the U.S. Government’s Emissions Control Area (ECA) protocols.
