MANILA - The Department of Trade and Industry-Philippine Shippers’ Bureau (DTI-PSB) has added four more cargo forwarders in its list of erring companies subject to complaints on undelivered “balikbayan” boxes.

In its February 8 advisory, the DTI-PSB warned Filipinos in the UK against doing business with Manila Forwarder UK, while those in the United Arab Emirates were warned against 7 Seas Marine Cargo.

The bureau said the Philippine agents of these two foreign cargo consolidators are under investigation due to missing packages. Manila Forwarder UK and 7 Seas Marine Cargo joined the 36 previously blacklisted foreign principals, as follows:

  • Dausan International Forwarder (Australia),

Manilafowarder Phil. Inc meanwhile joined Monark Customs Brokerage Corp and RRG Freight Services in the list of accredited freight forwarders that have been issued show cause orders by DTI-PSB because of “balikbayan” box complaints. D’ Winner Logistics Philippines Inc remains in the blacklist as it lost its accreditation following certain violations of the rules on freight forwarding under PSB Administrative Order No. 6.

The DTI-PSB had already endorsed three cargo forwarders servicing Filipinos in Dubai to the Department of Justice (DOJ) for investigation on possible estafa. The bureau said it has received a January 22 letter from the DOJ requiring submission of affidavits from complainants.

As of January 31, there are 155 accredited domestic freight forwarders as well as 594 registered non-vessel operating common carriers and international freight forwarders.
