Dear Customers,

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

The BAF surcharges are as follows:

  • Breakbulk: USD 10.00 per RT
  • Containers:
    • USD 200.00 per TEU
    • USD 400.00 per FEU

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

  • Break bulk USD 3.00 per RT
  • Containers:
    • USD 50.00 per TEU
    • USD 100.00 per FEU

The above surcharges will come into effect from the following sailing:

  • AAL Kobe – 02E21

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.
