BAF-Guidelines


From 01/01/2013 the barge transport prices are based on a gasoil price up to 70.00 EUR per 100 litres. This adjustment has been adopted due to several factors:

  1. We do not think it likely that the price of gasoil will go below EUR 70.00 CBRB,
  2. We have adapted the gasoil regulation to our changed fleet of vessels,
  3. The visual representation has been corrected - higher base rate, lower surcharge,
  4. The result is a unified system of rates (after integration),
  5. The new gasoil surcharge takes more account of real fuel consumption per container and is thus embedded in our sustainability strategy.

The price of gasoil is determined every month by the Centraal Bureau voor ee Rijn- en Binnenvaart (CBRB, the central office for Rhine and inland waterway navigation). If this base price is exceeded, a surcharge is calculated for each increment of 2.25 EUR per 100 litres, or a decrease if the current price should fall below the base price. The calculation is made in accordance with the indices listed here.
