Reporting a suspicious shipment / situation

Unfortunately, our industry is regularly confronted with fraudulent trade.

Logistics service providers are not only misused to smuggle in criminal goods; fiscal fraud, counterfeiting, trade in waste, undervaluation cases, etc. are also frequent occurrences.

Given the ingenuity of criminal organisations, it is not easy for a logistics service provider to spot suspicious shipments. We also note that these rogue companies often ‘shop around’ among the various logistics service providers until they find a victim.

Based on the idea that you can achieve more together, FORWARD Belgium is starting an anonymous reporting point for its members.

Through this reporting point, FORWARD Belgium members can report suspicious situations/shipments to their organisation and member companies are kept informed within this private network. FORWARD Belgium provides the suspicious consignment reporting point but does not accept any liability for the information provided through this reporting point. The user acknowledges that the information provided is shared within a private network. This information is not shared with external parties. The user bears full responsibility at all times for the information he/she makes available through the reporting point. A maximum of two people per company can be designated to participate in the reporting point. The information obtained from the reporting point is exclusively for internal use within the own organisation and may under no circumstances be disseminated further.

The information that can be reported through the reporting point must enable companies to make a better internal risk analysis when accepting a customer and/or shipment (import/export; country of origin/destination; type of goods, etc.).

This reporting point in no way replaces the anonymous ‘Our Port Drug-Free’ reporting point; they are complementary to each other.
