Clecat joins fairer bunkers scheme

[ July 1, 2020   //   ]

European forwarders’ association Clecat has joined an initiative started last year by Drewry and the European Shippers’ Council to define fair principles and a clear indexing mechanism for Bunker Adjustment Factors in container shipping. The three organisations will promote the voluntary use of the indexing mechanism for fuel charges. They also plan to work on areas of cooperation, possibly covering further resources, transparency or easier standard contract practices for all stakeholders in the maritime and logistics sectors.
