The first of several Panalpina-related investigations

The first of several Panalpina-related investigations

FRA was engaged by a major US drilling company which had been caught up in the ‘Panalpina’ freight forwarding case. The DOJ and SEC were alleging that the client utilized Panalpina as a freight forwarder to import items into sub-saharan Africa, and that it knowingly reimbursed Panalpina for bribes and facilitation payments made.

FRA also carried out an assessment of the gain that our client might have made from the practice.
