Freight Forwarders Antitrust Settlements

July 22, 2024
1:08-cv00042 US District Court, Eastern District of New York


Direct purchasers of freight forwarding services in the United States claim that the major global freight forwarding companies conspired to fix various prices and surcharges for freight forwarding services in violation of U.S. federal antitrust laws. As a result, purchasers paid more for freight forwarding s​ervices than they otherwise would have paid. The first round of the freight forwarder settlements totaled $105,611,864, and August 24, 2015 was the deadline to file claims. The second round of the Freight Forwarders Settlement totaled $197,623,497. The current round is $53,550,000.


All persons (excluding governmental entities, Defendants, their respective parents, subsidiaries and affiliates) who directly purchased Freight Forwarding Services (a) for shipments within, to, or from the United States, or (b) purchased or sold in the United States regardless of the location of shipment; from any of the Defendants, subsidiary or affiliate, at any time from January 1, 2001 to January 4, 2011.
