FREIGHT FORWARDERS ARRESTED IN MIAMI FOR SHIPPING SONY PLAYSTATIONS

Posted in Export, Freight Forwarding

To the dismay of the local international trade community, three international freight forwarding companies and their owners were arrested for illegally exporting merchandise to a company in Paraguay. The company in Paraguay had been designated a “Specially Designated Global Terrorist” by the United States Government. Exporters and forwarding companies sending any cargo to such a company, even Sony Playstation video games, would be a violation of law.
