To our Valued Coastal Transportation Customers:

The Coastal Transportation team thanks you for your support and the continued opportunity to earn your business.  We are working hard to continue to provide a first-class overall experience for you, our customer.

After looking at our cost increases in 2022, our costs went up 8%.  Thankfully we were able to add several sailings in 2022 otherwise this number would have been several percentage points even higher.  For 2023, we will be applying a 7.9% GRI on ocean freight and a 15% increase on terminal services.

With the decrease in petroleum prices as well as market volatility, Coastal is announcing a decrease to our fuel surcharge (FSC) from 34.00% to 30.00%.

Both are effective Friday, December 16th, 2022

Thank you for your business.
