UPDATE NILEDUTCH NEW BUNKER ADJUSTMENT FACTOR (NBF) AND ISPS VESSEL SURCHARGE (IVS)
Dear Valued Customers,
As per October 1st, the NBF amount per trade will be as followed:
NBF is different per trade, based on the fuel price in key bunkering ports, and the trade factor for the specific trade. NBF is charged separately from the ocean freight.
Please note that as from October 1st NileDutch is aligning the NBF level with Hapag-Lloyd’s MFR (Marine Fuel Recovery).
However, there are trade lanes where NBF levels are decreasing versus the September levels. In such cases it is likely that further adjustments take place in the basic ocean freight.
In addition, as per October 1st, the IVS (ISPS Vessel Surcharge) amount will be USD 13 per container, except for exports/imports from/to South America, which will be USD 15 per container. For routes using the EUR currency (exports/imports from/to Europe), the amount will be EUR 10 per container.
We wish to thank our customers for their usual understanding and support. Please do not hesitate to contact your local NileDutch representative for information.
Your NileDutch team.
