Welcome to "Integrity in Transportation"

"Integrity in Transportation" is a neutral entity comprised of experienced logistics professionals. We strongly believe that ethics, integrity and fair dealing should be the essential cornerstones of any Supply Chain and that these traits should be reflected in all activities undertaken by transportation and logistics providers. Further, that companies involved in Supply Chain logistics should adopt the following Policy as their company ethos:

"That neither our employees nor any other person representing our Company (such as agents, suppliers, joint venture partners or others), will, for any reason, either directly or indirectly, offer anything of value(including presents, gifts, loans, fees, commissions, compensations, acknowledgements, jobs, positions, contracts, services, favors, etc.) to any person or entity, directly or indirectly, either as a reward or in order to gain commercial or personal advantage."

"Integrity in Transportation" provides a cost-effective facility for companies involved in Supply Chain logistics to become Accredited "Integrity in Transportation" Providers subject to having adopted the above Policy and having provided satisfactory evidence of its initial and on-going implementation.

The UK's Bribery Act 2010 leaves open the possibility that even where a company does not exercise direct control over remote entities in the Supply Chain, such entities could still be deemed associated persons and therefore recommends that companies should implement anti-bribery procedures along their supply chain and that they conduct risk-based due diligence.  In the USA, enforcement of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) is at an all-time high and expected to remain a priority for the U.S. Government.  The recent focus on customs brokers, freight forwarders and other international service providers in the wake of the Panalpina Settlement, is also expected to continue.  As a result, U.S. exporters and other businesses involved in international transportation and sales who are operating without a robust FCPA compliance program are exposing themselves to substantial levels of risk.  The FCPA makes it illegal to pay or offer to pay anything of value to a foreign government official for the purpose of obtaining or retaining business. Violation of the FCPA can lead to severe civil and criminal penalties, including significant federal prison sentences, against companies as well as individuals.
