What is EBS?

EBS (Emergency Bunker Surcharge) is implemented by carriers to further cover the cost of rising fuel prices. EBS is implemented on top of BAF (Bunker Adjustment Factor) once fuel (bunker) prices have risen so high that carriers begin to lose profits (i.e. the “emergency”).

EBS is implemented per carrier, per trade lane and will be included in Flexport’s freight rates if applicable.
