On July 13, 2016, the DOJ announced that Norwegian ocean shipping firm Wallenius Wilhelmsen Logistics AS (WWL) has agreed to pay a $98.9 million criminal fine for its role in a price-fixing conspiracy in the market for international ocean shipping of “roll-on, roll-off” cargo, including cars, trucks and heavy equipment. According to the single-count criminal information filed in the U.S. District Court for the District of Maryland, the conspiracy spanned over a decade and involved price-fixing, bid-rigging, and allocation of customers and routes among WWL and its co-conspirators. WWL is the fourth company to agree to plead guilty in the DOJ’s ongoing investigation, which also has yielded charges against eight individual executives and netted a total of $230 million in agreed-upon fines. WWL’s plea agreement is subject to court approval.
