ANL - Bunker Adjustment Factor – Effective 1st April 2019
To our Valued Customers,
Bunker is one of the important cost components for a container shipping line. And as you are aware, IFO 380 price has shown strong fluctuations in the recent months.
ANL have advised, in addition, a new IMO (International Maritime Organization) low sulphur regulation will be applied to all container shipping companies effective 1st January 2020. The regulation stipulates a maximum sulphur content threshold of 0.5% for marine fuels over 100% of the sea distance for any maritime services including all ANL services.
On 1st January 2019, ANL moved to a quarterly Bunker Adjustment Formula (BAF).
BAF quantum applicable from 1st April 2019 will be calculated based on the IFO 380 per ton range $376-$400.
