Dear Valued Customer,

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

Break Bulk - $41.18 per rvt
20’ Containers - $700 per TEU
40’ Containers - $1400 per FEU

The revised BAF rates will take effect on all cargo loaded from 1st April 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,
