Inter Pacific Islands Bunker Adjustment Factor

November 1, 2019

Further to Swire Shipping efforts to ensure that we are compliant with the IMO2020 regulations, Swire Shipping will changeover fully to the more expensive IMO2020 compliant fuel types in December. 

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 for the month of December 2019 will be as follows:


Containers: USD 305 / 20’ or USD 610 / 40’

Breakbulk: USD 17.00 / RT 

The above surcharge will apply for all consignments showing a Swire Shipping Bill of Lading date of 1st December 2019 or later for connections within the Pacific Islands.
