IMB: Largest heroin seizure made by the UK

The UK’s Border Force and the National Crime Agency (NCA) have seized 1.3 tonnes of heroin from a container ship in UK.

The latest bulletin from International Maritime Bureau (IMB) also presents information about sanctions, fraud cases as logistics companies fined for collusion and the owner of a trading platform charged for false statements, concerning more than 300 members.

In this newsletter IMB reports of a series of suspect tug and barge CPO (crude palm oil) shipments in the Indonesian archipelago, which they have identified through referrals from their banking members.
