U.S. Businesses Pay High Air Cargo Shipping Costs as Worldwide Airlines are Accused of Fixing Prices

Share Article

With a worldwide investigation underway, businesses shipping to and from the U.S. realize they may have been victims of price fixing.

U.S. businesses are not alone, many international businesses have been forced to pay high cargo surcharges by major airlines. Numerous cargo airlines are being investigated and several lawsuits have already been filed. These airlines are charged with conspiring to raise fuel and security surcharges on cargo shipped to and from the U.S. since 2000.

Price fixing (agreeing to impose certain costs and surcharges) and price gouging (charging a price that is higher than what is fair given current circumstances) can both be considered illegal in U.S. civil court. To investigate these international allegations, the U.S. Justice Department, FBI, European Commission, and several Asian agencies have been working together.
