Latest BAF Surcharges

What is a BAF? – The bunker adjustment factor or BAF is an additional fee charged by ship operators to compensate for fluctuations in fuel prices. It is imposed to compensate for additional charges incurred during the transport of goods.
The MGO/BAF calculation is based on the price of Marine Gas Oil (MGO) in Rotterdam, together with the appropriate exchange rate (USD/Euro). The price of Marine Gas Oil (MGO) in Rotterdam can be tracked on the Bunkerworld website. Additionally the USD/Euro exchange rates can be tracked on European Central Bank web site.

In order for the freight ferries to sail they consume a certain amount fuel on each crossing. This is a result for the ferry operators to charge with a fuel surcharge (BAF) per booking. Depending on the ferry operator the fuel charge can vary. The longer the crossing is the burned fuel increases. Some operators charge the BAF per meter or based on the type of the vehicle.
The majority of the ferry operators determines and announces their fuel surcharge on a monthly basis. Based on the date of your sailing the corresponding fuel surcharge will be applicable. In this section you will be able to find the BAF for the current month and few months prior how it has changed.
