More reporting and greater awareness leading to increased government reaction is proving a successful strategy in the battle against piracy, says IMB.
A number of fraudulent steel shipments from North Africa have raised the suspicion of the ICC crime watchdog, the International Maritime Bureau (IMB). IMB has recently uncovered a number of false bills of lading associated with these trades and is advising banks and traders to exercise caution when conducting business with respect to steel and metal cargoes from ports in and around North Africa.
