MANILA - The Department of Trade and Industry-Philippine Shippers’ Bureau has struck off three more cargo forwarders from its blacklist after complaints over missing balikbayan boxes were resolved, according to the agency.

The latest list dated October 25 showed that LCSN Express Movers Inc, Transtech Global Philippines Inc and Wide-Wide World Express Corp are no longer among the accredited freight forwarding firms issued show cause orders by DTI-PSB. Only company remains on this list.

DTI-PSB meanwhile has retained on the blacklist 18 unaccredited local freight forwarders that have been issued formal charges, as well as 27 foreign principals/cargo consolidators that have been subjects of complaints concerning undelivered balikbayan boxes.

The list of accredited local and foreign cargo companies can be found here.

Earlier, the DTI-PSB removed 2GO Express and MC Plus from a blacklist of cargo forwarders they resolved consumer complaints against them.

The DTI-PSB had issued a blacklist of cargo forwarders at the start of the holiday gift-giving season when overseas Filipinos usually send home balikbayan boxes.
