DTI warns public against unreputable freight forwarders

MAKATI, 23 Jan. (PIA)--The Department of Trade and Industry’s Fair Trade Enforcement Bureau (DTI-FTEB) warned the public against the unreputable freight forwarders, which were the subject of complaints from shippers and consignees for non-delivery of Balikbayan boxes.

In a statement, DTI-Consumer Protection Group (CPG) Undersecretary Atty. Victorio Mario A. Dimagiba said the DTI-FTEB listed these erring foreign and local sea freight forwarders to prevent consumers in patronizing their services.

“The advisory also cited the 54 foreign freight forwarders/consolidators from Asia, Australia, Europe, Middle East and USA that have pending complaints pertaining to Balikbayan boxes,” Dimagiba said.

According to Dimagiba, the FTEB, a DTI-CPG line bureau, regularly posts its advisory of erring foreign and local sea freight forwarders for non-delivery of Balikbayan boxes in the DTI website.
