Trans Tasman Service – BAF Currency Change

Trans Tasman Service – BAF Currency Change

Dear Valued Customers,

Swire Shipping has recently undertaken a review of the Trans-Tasman BAF.

As a result the trade will no longer issue separate BAF notices for eastbound and westbound customers and manifest the costs of fuel in United States Dollars instead of local currencies from 1st July 2016 onwards.

This will allow a simpler and more transparent process with Swire Shipping’s fuel costs incurred in United States Dollars.
All customers will retain the opportunity to pay BAF in their local currency; however, it will be converted at the respective voyage exchange rate.
Swire Shipping appreciates your continued support and if you require any further information please do not hesitate to contact your local representative.



Yours sincerely

Swire Shipping Trade Management
