NEW BUNKER ADJUSTMENT FACTOR (NBAF)
(Nov 11, 2019, 12:45:50 PM GMT+1)
In order to comply with a new IMO 2020 Low Sulphur Regulation, all operated vessels around the globe are obliged to use the new marine fuel in which content
is limited to 0,5 % of Sulphur.
The new IMO 2020 Low Sulphur Regulation impacts the global shipping industry and shipping costs are set to increase worldwide.
Ignazio Messina line as from 1st December 2019, will start to apply the new bunker adjustment factor (NBAF) based on the following formula:
NEW BUNKER ADJUSTMENT FACTOR = Very Low Sulphur Oil (VLSFO) Price per ton X LINE FACTOR (*)
Line Factor will be calculated separately for each different trade
(*) Line factor = FUEL CONSUMPTION/CARRIED EQUIVALENT TEU
Therefore all in rates will be splitted as follows: basic rates + new bunker adjustment factor
NBAF for December will consider the October average cost for VLSFO (Very Low Sulphur Oil)
NBAF will be updated on a monthly basis.
Please contact your local IM office/agent for any questions you may have.
Thank you for your cooperation and continued support.

È mancato questa mattina, poco prima dell’alba, il Sig. Gianfranco Messina. Riferimento indiscusso della società e della famiglia Messina, assieme ai suoi due fratelli Giorgio e Paolo ha retto per lunghi anni densi di successi il timone della nostra azienda. Naturale anello di congiunzione tra storia e futuro, anche negli anni successivi e fino agli ultimi giorni, con la sua costante presenza in azienda insieme al fratello Paolo al fianco di figli e nipoti ha dispensato preziosi consigli e stimoli a tutta la struttura aziendale con la consueta motivazione. Ci mancherà.

A natural link between history and future, even in the following years and up to the last few days, with his constant presence in the company together with his brother Paolo and his sons and grandchildren, he has given valuable advice and motivation to the entire company. We are all going to miss him.
The rosary will be recited today at 7 p.m. in che church of Santa Teresa del Bambin Gesù (Genoa, Via Guerrazzi 23) and the funeral will be tomorrow at 11.45 in the same church.

In this regard, wewill now have to wait for the motivationsfor the judgmentin order to know howthe judge has rebuilt the behaviour and the role of the various actorsduring this manoeuvre.
