Immediate Increase in CRS, BAF & Diesel Surcharge

As a result of the current situation in Ukraine, and the rapid escalation of fuel costs throughout Europe, extraordinary measures are required to secure the continuation of our services.

Please take notice of the following. 

BAF – Sea transport
Due to the dramatic increase in oil prices, we see no other possibility than to change from a monthly BAF into a bi-weekly BAF. Starting in week 11, we will announce BAF with two weeks validity, and this will be valid for shipments in week 12-13. The next update will then be in week 13, valid for shipments in week 14-15. And so on. In continuation, please note that our previously announced BAF – announced in April, is withdrawn.

-The BAF additional for week 10 & 11 is Euro 99,- per TEU.
-The BAF additional for week 12 & 13 is Euro 210,- per TEU.

CRS – Sea transport
This impact, with a shortage of vessels and continuation of high charter rates, forces us to increase the current CRS from EUR 35,- to EUR 60,- per TEU. This change will be valid from April 1st 2022.

Diesel Prices – Land transport
The diesel prices for land transport have increased with some 40% since January 1st, 2022. Hence, our rates were based on the diesel price per January 1st, 2022, we therefore do not see any other alternative than to implement an urgent diesel surcharge with immediate effect.

-The surcharge will be adjusted every 1st and 15th in the month, based on the same regulations as earlier.
-The diesel surcharge will be added as an own line on the invoice for all Door-Door deliveries.
-The diesel surcharge for the period 15th to 31st March is +9,45%
