Bunker Adjustment Factor(redirected from Bunker Adjustment Factors)
Bunker Adjustment Factor
An increase in a shipping rate as the result of increased oil prices. Because higher oil prices add to expenses, a shipper may set a bunker adjustment factor so as not to reduce profits. Each shipping company sets its own bunker adjustment factor; regulators monitor BAFs so collusion does not take place.
