How rapidly dropping fuel charges will effect your BAF Charge

The below factors also vary per steamship line.

• Average weekly bunker price ($/MT)
• Average fuel consumption per sailing (MT/day)
• Average sailing time (days at sea)
• Average vessel effective capacity (FEU)
• Average vessel utilization
For Q1 2015 the bottom line is that the bunker charges did not decrease significantly.  There is an average $22 reduction from Q4 2014 for 40’ standard containers shipping to the WC.  20’ standard bunker charges are calculated at 90% of 40’ standard rates.  Other equipment varies.  The next adjustment is scheduled for April 1, 2015.
