Losses due to official misconduct account for a great many maritime trade incidents. Each incident can be complex and wide-ranging in nature. It is therefore unlikely that any one company will have the knowledge and resources to be able to investigate it thoroughly.

The ICC International Maritime Bureau (IMB) is inviting non-vessel owning common carriers or NVOCCs to sign up to its IMB NVOCC Register.
NVOCCs that do so stand to benefit from being recognised as adhering to an agreed standard of anti-fraud measures.
They can use the fact that they are listed on the IMB Register to demonstrate that they are abiding by a Code of Conduct for the issuance of bills of lading (BLs) i.e. that they are the “good guys”.
This in turn gives trade banks confidence that the transport documentation generated by NVOCCs have been properly issued, and hopefully speed up the process of clearing those transactions.
