How does ApiraSol know if a Shipment is suspicious?
Often, trademarks are not mentioned in Bills of Lading. Personal care products are declared as “personal items” or “garbage”. In other cases,
the correct trademark is visible and there is nothing suspicious in the product descriptions.
Our experience tells us that illicit trade always leaves an OSINT footprint. We study multiple factors such as low prices, mixes of brands in one container,
unusual routes, changes in reported shipper names, ports, quantities, keywords and contact details.
ApiraSol interviews product experts from within brand owner and government organizations to define multiple risk-rules. We identify new investigation targets and
also track shipment data for our clients’ targets and products.
With ApiraSol Supply Chain Suite, we run Shipment monitoring projects together with our clients, allowing us to capture knowledge across our clients´ brand protection organizations.
