Swire Shipping BAF Announcement (WCNA) - Mar 2013

January 30th 2013

United States and Canada to Australia and New Zealand
Increase to Bunker Adjustment Fee (BAF)

Dear Valued Customer,

Please be advised that the Bunker Adjustment Factor (BAF) applied to all exports from the United States and Canada to Australia and New Zealand will increase effective 1st March 2013 as follows:

Break Bulk - $40.00 per rvt
20’ Containers - $680 per TEU
40’ Containers - $1360 per FEU

The revised BAF rates will take effect on all cargo loaded from 1st March 2013.

This revision is in response to recent increases in bunker price.

Tariff cargo as well as existing contracts (except those with an agreed BAF calculation) will be subject to this increase.

Please do not hesitate to contact your local agency representative should you have any questions.

Yours faithfully,

WCNA Trade Management Team
