Dear Customers,

Following a change in bunkering costs within our trading area, we are adjusting the Bunker Adjustment Factor (BAF) surcharge across our ‘Europe – Middle East – Asia Liner Services’.

The BAF surcharges are as follows:

  • Breakbulk: USD 15.00 per RT
  • Containers*:           
    • USD 225.00 per TEU
    • USD 450.00 per FEU

Due to increased waiting time we implement the following congestion surcharges on our liner trade:

  • Breakbulk: USD 3.00 per RT
  • Containers:           
    • USD 50.00 per TEU
    • USD 100.00 per FEU

The above surcharges will come into effect from 1st March 2021.

We are monitoring bunker prices closely and will advise you of any further changes affecting surcharges. Please do not hesitate to contact your AAL representative any for further information. In the meantime, we thank you for your continued support.

Whilst writing we also take the opportunity on behalf of the whole company to wish you, your colleagues and families well during these extremely challenging times. Keep safe everyone.
