The time for higher BAF charges has come

The time for higher BAF charges has come
With the enforcement date of the IMO 2020 low-sulphur regulation now only 6 weeks away, shippers and forwarders are starting to get their chequebooks out to help ocean carriers cover the additional cost of the cleaner, low-sulphur fuel.

ESC, Drewry announce an IMO 2020 BAF transparent indexing mechanism

Drewry and the European Shippers’ Council (ESC) have published a bunker adjustment factor indexing mechanism to help shippers monitor and control bunker charges in the run-up to and following the introduction of the IMO 2020 low-sulphur regulation.

New risks heap more pressure on beleaguered container market

The mood-music surrounding the container market has deteriorated further in the last three months, resulting in Drewry downgrading its outlook for world container port throughput for the current year and the rest of the five-year horizon, in its latest Container Market Annual Review and Forecast.

Study findings: Drewry believes future online marketplaces could bring mutual benefit to both carriers and shippers

Online technology platforms where shipping lines and their customers can negotiate forward contracts could help improve vessel utilisation levels and reduce freight rate volatility, according to a joint study conducted by global shipping consultancy, Drewry and maritime supply chain technology provider, CyberLogitec.
