C.A.F. & B.A.F (Currency & Bunker Adjustments Factors)
The currency adjustment factor (CAF) is a fee placed on top of freighting charges for carrier companies. The charge was developed to account for constantly changing exchange rates between the dollar US and other currencies. Thus its goal is to offset any losses from constantly fluctuating exchange rates for carriers.
The bunker adjustment factor (CAF) covers the fluctuations
in global bunker costs, and is invoiced as a separate charge to
provide transparency to our customers.
The carrier will automatically apply this charge to all bookings.
