Trade Tips

  • Trade Tips expand

    The United States government defines a denied (or excluded) party as any party to an international transaction which has been placed on any official denied persons list, is blocked from import or export transactions, or has been sanctioned by a government for illegal acts such as involvement in terrorism, narcotics trafficking, money laundering, or weapons proliferation.

    U.S. law places the burden of responsibility for conducting adequate denied party screening compliance on exporters, carriers, and forwarding agents alike. All of these transportation partners are bound by law to avoid the handling of any transactions which include a denied party.

    UPS uses software systems for all of its denied party screening requirements that search over 30 excluded party lists taken from both U.S. and international sources. These systems identify, investigate, and halt shipments with questionable parties immediately upon entry into our shipping systems.
