Carriers' marine fuel cost recovery methods 'unfair' say shippers


Global shippers/beneficial cargo owners (BCOs) and freight forwarders have raised concerns over the lack of fuel cost transparency in the run up to the implementation of the International Maritime Organisation's (IMO) rule that sulphur content in marine fuel be capped at 0.5 per cent, starting from January 1, 2020.
Respondents to a survey conducted by global shipping consultancy Drewry and follow-up interviews about shipping lines' methods of fuel cost recovery found that 56 per cent of respondents did not consider their service providers' existing approaches as either fair or transparent.
Furthermore, four in every five of the shippers/BCOs participating in the poll stated that they had yet to receive clarity from their providers as to how the widely anticipated future fuel cost increases, set to accompany the 2020 regulatory change, would be met, reported AJOT.
