Tcertification Spotlight – Ben Line Agencies

Advancing transparency in the maritime sector

Corruption in the maritime industry is widespread and often challenging to tackle due to its routine nature. Frequent and persistent bribe demands from customs officials can be difficult for companies to navigate and address particularly without the right industry partner.

Ben Line Agencies is a leading privately owned maritime agency and logistics services company with operations across the Asia Pacific region. With their long-standing presence in the industry and commitment to compliance, Ben Line Agencies has built partnerships with many of the best-known names in the maritime and logistics industries based on trust and transparency.

In 2014, Ben Line Agencies completed Tcertification, an internationally recognized due diligence review and compliance credential offered by Ethixbase360, setting a new standard in compliance for the maritime industry. For the last decade, they have maintained their Tcertification status by renewing their report annually, and recognizing its business value. Being Tcertified allows Ben Line Agencies to serve as a valued maritime logistics partner to several large multinational companies across high-risk verticals that accept Tcertification in lieu of their own KYC procedures, and provides a head start in cases where companies have their own screening requirements.

“Ben Line Agencies is fully committed to rooting out corruption in the maritime and logistics industry, and through our industry affiliations and Tcertification we are proud of the role we have played in advancing collective action initiatives and transparency across the Asia Pacific region. While not all our business partners require Tcertification, we encourage them to request our report which includes detailed ownership, business, financial, and reputational information about our company. This signals our commitment to commercial transparency and good corporate governance,” said Therry van Vreden, Group Compliance Officer, Ben Line Agencies.

“Ben Line Agencies’ commitment to transparency and compliance is well known across the maritime and logistics industry. As a long-standing Tcertified entity, Ben Line Agencies has helped drive compliance in the maritime world,” said Ethixbase360 CEO Peter Sweetbaum.
