Mediterranean Shipping Co. will start charging a higher bunker adjustment factor next month on all cargo it carries on its Capricorn Service from Southeast Asia to Australia and New Zealand.
Starting Dec. 1 MSC’s BAF will be $555 per 20-foot equivalent container unit.
Bunker fuel prices have been rising generally since the start of October and Bunker World, which tracks bunker rates around the world, says its index of pricing has increased 4.9 percent in since late September.
MSC is No. 2 on the JOC list of Top 15 Container Fleet Operators.
