Inter Pacific Islands Bunker Adjustment Factor

October 1, 2019

Further to the announcement last month, Swire Shipping continues to take steps to ensure that the vessels we operate will be fully compliant with IMO2020 regulations. As part of this changeover, Swire Shipping now has increased requirements for the more expensive IMO2020 compliant fuel types.

As a result, Swire Shipping wishes to advise that the Bunker Adjustment Factor (BAF) applicable for cargo shipped within the Pacific Islands including Fiji, New Caledonia, Vanuatu, Tonga, Western Samoa and American Samoa will increase as follows for the month of November 2019-


Containers: USD 320/20’ or USD 640/40’

Breakbulk:  USD 17.75/rt 

Effective Date:

For all cargoes loaded with a Bill of Lading on or after 1st November 2019
