After receiving a new demand for shipment from an unregistered consignor, the carrier proceeded with the mandatory assessment to validate the feasibility and legality of the shipment request. After the cargo was exported from its country of origin, it didn’t get customs clearance in the country of transit as the mechanical parts included in the shipment couldn’t clearly be related to any vehicle. After spending several days collecting relevant information it came to light of the analysts that these mechanical parts were related to military vehicles. As the consignor had no transit license, because the shipment was linked with strategic military goods, and because the country of destination was embargo for such goods. The cargo was therefore halted in the country of transit and taking up room in the storage terminal of the carrier till the situation would be solved.
To guarantee a swift and risk-free cargo management, information from a broad range of sources is analyzed to assess whether consignor and consignee, their respective activities and stakeholders are subject to sanctions, or that their countries are under specific embargos. The content of the waybill is automatically included in the analysis to also assess whether goods shipped can be linked to contraband, strategic military, illegal or dangerous goods. Based on the automated analysis, which is included in an audit trail, the analyst can efficiently make decisions and can legally substantiate those with the audit trail.
