Alison Transport pays $22,500 penalty to settle U.S. antiboycott violations
The U.S. Commerce Department said Alison Transport, a shipper’s export agent located in Oceanside, N.Y., has agreed to pay a $22,500 civil penalty to settle allegations that it violated the country’s antiboycott rules.
The department alleged that on three occasions that Alison Transport provided prohibited information about another company’s business relationships in connection to shipments from the United States to Oman, Kuwait and Saudi Arabia.
The department also alleged that Alison Transport failed to report its receipt of a request from Oman to provide a certificate that the planes used to transport the shipments were not blacklisted by the Arab League Boycott Committee.
U.S. antiboycott laws prohibit U.S. persons from complying with certain requirements of unsanctioned foreign boycotts.
