Young Brothers Rates to Go Up

(KHNL) -- Starting Monday, it'll cost more to ship between islands.

Young Brothers received approval from the Public Utilities Commission on new tariff sheets. This follows a previous approval of an overall 7.5% increase for its various inter-island cargo services.

The new approved rates include a 15% increase for less-than-container-load shipments, a 2.25% increase on dry containers, and a 4.5% percent increase on refrigerated containers, automobiles and platforms.
