Company Pays $85,000 Penalty for Allowing NVOCC Access to Contracts

The Federal Maritime Commission ordered Jiangsu Feiliks International Logistics, Inc., a registered NVOCC located in the People’s Republic of China, to pay $85,000 as compromise for letting another NVOCC access its service contracts.

The compromise agreement alleged that between January 8, 2015 and June 27, 2015, Jiangsu Feiliks knowingly and willfully permitted an unrelated, non-signatory party to access Kawasaki Kisen Kaisha, Ltd. service contracts Nos. SZH5002404 and SZH5002406, thereby obtaining ocean transportation for such third party at less than the rates and charges that would otherwise apply.
