Due to mandatory global changes in the bunker fuel used by shipping vessels to a low sulphur fuel, we have been notified by all our shipping providers that BAF levies will increase effective January 1st 2020.

Starting January 1st 2020, all vehicles being loaded and shipped will attract the increased BAF levies. You will see this on your Autohub invoice as a separate line entry.

As each shipping line calculates BAF differently, we have converted this to a ‘per vehicle’ amount to keep things simple.

For Japan to NZ

RoRo (up to 24 cubic meters) $95 NZD per vehicle
RoRo (over 24 cubic meters) POA
Container $150 NZD per vehicle

For Australia to NZ

RoRo $95 NZD
Container TBA

For UK to NZ, NZ coastal shipping, and other routes, these rates will be confirmed as we receive them from our shipping lines.
