IFO 380 remains the reference fuel oil for APL’s 2019 Q3 BAF computation. To stay compliant with the International Maritime Organisation’s more stringent Sulphur content requirement coming into effect 1st January 2020, APL will start bunkering with the new Low Sulphur Fuel Oil (LSFO) 0.5% from 2019 Q4 onwards. Corresponding adjustments to the reference fuel and applicable index will accordingly be determined and announced in due course.

Please contact your local APL representative if you need any assistance.
