Bunker Adjustment Factor for Barge Transport in March 2017

The gasoil-price-index monitored by CBRB, Rotterdam, has remained stable. Hence, Bunker Adjustment Factor (BAF) for March 2017 is settled to scale 16 of the Frankenbach BAF Scheme. Kindly take note.

You may find the complete Frankenbach BAF Scheme in the download area of our homepage www.frankenbach.com


Terminal Opening Hours during the upcoming Easter holidays

Please consider the upcoming Easter holidays and the resulting shortened working weeks (calendar week 15 and 16) for your transport planning. The FCT container terminal and the office in Mainz will be closed on 14 April 2017 as well as 17 April 2017.
Furthermore, there will be limited arrivals and exits in our train transport in this period of time.
Please kindly consider these restrictions in your transport planning. We therefore ask for early reservations.
Please contact our team planning in case of any further questions.
