Maersk Line’s Bunker Adjustment Factor

 

  • Maersk Line’s bunker adjustment factor (SBF) is a charge to account for fluctuations in bunker costs.
  • The SBF tariffs are trade-specific and we update them quarterly. 
  • SBF is calculated based on changes to our fuel costs from one quarter to the next.

 

Q1 SBF tariffs - effective 1 Jan – 31 March 2015: Download here.
Q2 SBF tariffs - effective 1 April – 30 June 2015: Download here.
Q3 SBF tariffs – effective 1 July – 30 Sept 2015: Download here.


We are working on a SBF look-up tool, which will make it possible to find current SBF tariffs based on load and discharge country and container type. We expect it to be ready by Q2 2015.
