31st July 2013

CHANGE IN BUNKER ADJUSTMENT FACTOR (BAF)
FOR NORTHBOUND CARGO
FROM PAPUA NEW GUINEA & SOLOMON ISLANDS TO ASIA

As a result of a fluctuation in the price of oil, Swire Shipping has revised the Bunker Adjustment Factor (BAF) being charged for all Northbound cargo from Papua New Guinea and Solomon Islands to Asia. The BAF charges will remain as follows:

September BAF

USD $600 / TEU

USD $1200 / FEU

USD $33.00 / RT (Break-bulk / LCL)

The new BAF charges will be implemented from the following vessels:

Ex PNG – Highland Chief V.0311N

Swire Shipping will review the BAF on this trade lane monthly, tracking it on the Platts IFO380 market price and reduce or increase our BAF accordingly.
