BAF Guideline

Why are we changing the calculation?

Development over the last two years has shown that gasoil prices have averaged around 52.00 EUR per 100 litres. For this reason, from 1 January 2018 we are lowering the basic charge rates for barge transport. Instead of the 70.00 EUR CBRB included up to now in the takeover rates for barge transports, the basic charge will now only include 49.75 EUR CBRB per 100 litres gasoil. If the gasoil price ascertained by the CBRB goes below the base value of 49.75 EUR per 100 litres, no surcharge deduction will be made.

How is the surcharge made up?

The breakdown and result of the surcharge remain the same:

If the base value of 49.75 EUR CBRB is exceeded, a surcharge is calculated for every increase of 2.25 EUR per 100 litres gasoil. This surcharge is calculated for all transports to and from the seaports of Rotterdam and Antwerp. The price ascertained for Month A is used as the basis for calculating the surcharge in Month C. This means, for example, that when calculating the Contargo BAF Index for July (C) 2018 the CBRB value for the month of May (A) 2018 is used. The amount of the surcharge is calculated by multiplying the Contargo BAF Index for the relevant month by the basic BAF value per terminal.

Example of calculation

Transport of a full 20ft container via the Mannheim Terminal, basic transport charge 500.00 EUR

Before 1 January 2018:
Calculation criterion: CBRB value 60.03 EUR per 100l gasoil (=Index -4)
Surcharge: -4 x 2.20 EUR = -8.80 EUR
Transport price: 500 (basic rate) – 8.80 (negative surcharge) = 491.20 EUR

From 1 January 2018:
Calculation criterion: CBRB value 60.03 EUR per 100l gasoil (=Index 5)
Calculation for new basic transport charge: -9 x 2.20 EUR = -19.80 EUR
BAF Surcharge: 5 x 2.20 EUR = 11.00 EUR
Old basic transport charge: 500.00 –19.80 = new basic transport charge 480.20 EUR
Transport price: 480.20 (new basic rate) +11.00 (surcharge) = 491.20 EUR
