Trade bunkers futures


Why trade bunkers futures?


As bunkers are tied so directly to volatile crude oil prices, price risk management has become a crucial issue in recent years.

Using Fuel Oil Single Swaps (FOSS) can help owners to cheaply and simply fix the price of future bunker fuel purchases.

FOSS can also be used by a wider range of market stakeholders, including charterers, traders, physical suppliers and financial institutions.

The Benefits Of Bunkers or Fuel Oil Hedging


  • Stabilize cash flows and secure margins by protecting from price volatility
  • Reduce the risk of financial distress and non-performance
  • Secure competitive edge by stabilizing prices along the supply chain, thus giving the company control over its pricing structure
  • No upfront premium
  • Improve the profile of the company towards its trading partners by assuring tight control over bunker risks.
