Sofrana ANL - Emergency Bunker Recovery Measures ex Australia to PNG and the Solomon Islands.

30th May 2018


BAF REVIEW – Australia to Papua New Guinea and Solomon Islands


Dear Valued Customers,


As you are well aware, bunker prices have significantly increased for the last few months.


This trend became noticeable from September 2017 and has intensified since the beginning of this year (+35% since September 2017, +20% since the beginning of 2018).


To keep ensuring the highest quality service, we wish to advise that the BAF applicable on the Australia to Papua New Guinea and Solomon Islands trade will be increased by US$80 per TEU.


Consequently, from USD600 per TEU, our BAF will be increased to USD680 per TEU, and USD34 per RT of breakbulk cargo.


The new BAF will come into effect from Sofrana Tourville V220, loading in Australia 30 June to 4 July 2018.


If you have any questions, please contact your local Sofrana ANL representative office.


Thank you for your continued support.


Yours sincerely,


Sofrana ANL (N.Z.) Limited
