Philippines probing GCC cargo agents

Nine Saudi-based cargo agents are under investigation by the Philippine Shippers' Bureau (PSB), following complaints of undelivered cargo from overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) in the kingdom, Arab News has reported. The probe is in response to complaints by Filipinos in the kingdom about undelivered 'balikbayan boxes' to their relatives in the Philippines, which is in violation of PSB Administrative Order No. 6 series of 2005, according to the Philippine Embassy in Riyadh. Six agents in the UAE, six in Kuwait, an agent in Oman and one in Bahrain are also under investigation, the PSB said.
