Totem 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 US Government's Emissions Control Area (ECA) protocols. They will be increasing their fuel surcharge from 22% to 26% effective Sunday, October 1, 2017. Alaskan Express will reflect this new rate on all shipments dated on or after the effective date.
As always, Alaskan Express will continue to monitor fuel prices and adjust as appropriate. We thank you for your business!
