update re NBF (New Bunker Factor)
Dear ZIM Customer,
Following ZIM’s previous communication from October 6th,2019, as of December 1st, 2019, the NBF surcharge is calculated based on 0.1% gasoil index minus a fixed deduction of $50/Ton.
This is to announce that commencing from March 1st 2020, and onward*, the NBF will be calculated based on the Platts 0.5% low Sulphur Fuel Index.
Please contact your local ZIM representative for any questions you have.
* There may be later implementation dates in trades where prior regulatory filing is required
