Although a number of airlines – like Emirates, Ethiopian and several others – have been making a big issue of offering all-in tariff rates, this trend is unlikely to migrate to the seafreight sector. It’s just not feasible, according to Glenn Delve, SA marketing director of MSC. All the various additionals – like bunker adjustment factor (baf), terminal handling charge, International Ship and Port Facility Security (ISPS) Code, 24-hour manifest fee, emission control surcharge – are trade specific, he told FTW. “On the Europe trade, for example,” he added, “everything is additional. The Far East is the closest to an allin tariff.” Airlines, according to Delve, have “completely different dynamics”.
