Four Firms Blacklisted Over Used Truck Parts 05/03/2008

Four businesses in the Philippines have been blacklisted over their reported participation in part of an attempted smuggling of the parts of used trucks which turned out to be SUV utility vehicles.

The alleged attempted struggle of utility vehicles as used truck parts occurred at the Port of Cebu in the Philippines. It has been reported that as the owners of the shipment did not succeed in importing entries, that the shipment was consequently considered abandoned. However, the Commissioner of Customs has been reported to have said in relation to the transportation of the used truck parts that as the four firms who have been subsequently blacklisted were listed on the manifest of the used truck parts, that as a result, they will be unable to trade with the bureau from then on.

It arose that the parts which had originally been declared as the parts of used trucks were in fact sports utility vehicles. The used truck parts were not in fact the contents of the shipment, and the smuggled lot of sports utility vehicles turned out to include Hyundai Starex vans, as well as a Mitsubishi Pajero, and an Isuzu Trooper. X ray images of the shipment concluded that instead of containing the used truck parts as declared, in fact the shipment held completely built vehicles. This would have benefited the smugglers criminally in that they would have evaded a certain level of trading tariff.
