Frauds in Logistics Sector
In the subcontinent, the transportation business at the corporate level is reasonably well organized; it however, remains in realm of unorganized sector at the grass root level, controlled mostly by supervisors and driver contractors or by the drivers themselves. Pace of drivers sets up the pace of operations. In our country, they always remain over tasked and underpaid. They spend their lives in miserable living conditions. Smart ones make a fortune out of the business. Then there are undesirable activities in which few indulge in which according to customers drives the core ethics of the transport business i.e. being unprofessional, stating rehearsed lies, seasoned deceit methods and involvement in well researched defrauding practices, unleashing them at an earliest possible opportunity for illegal monetary gains or simply fraud. The onus of this behavior lies partially in drivers upbringing in backdrop of our societal set up; cultural practices and partially on their employer payment terms and condition. A driver is happy if his fuel tank is filed up in time and he has an access to it, whenever he desires. We at DRASInt Risk Alliance Private Limited are sure that this irrational behavior can be disciplined by adopting technology, employing correct operational processes, practices and anti-fraud procedures. At times the staff at corporate is also a party to the frauds and receives kickback for each successful scam which is undertaken. Thus, the second set of people who set the pace of operations is the staff at corporate involved in releasing the payments. The favored methods of defrauding employed by them are commission and kickback. Fraudulent practices by the C-Suite are not very uncommon in the business as the processes suffer from loopholes and limitations. At times, there exist a huge disparity between capability and expectation. Under these settings, unrealistic business targets promised to the Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) lead to disappointments due to frequent failures and unknown risks. The oversight mechanism is either absent or has rudimentary presence. With due blessings of the external auditors, misleading the management into banking and financial frauds to hide undesirable results, or to inflate the asset component in the balance sheet to take loans have been found to be one of the most common frauds employed by the financial department. Falsification of results is a common practice.

The business risks posed by such practices are high. Most of these risks are tangible. A few have a short term financial impact while others have a more serious long term reputational impact leading to closure of business houses. There are multitudes of anti-fraud methods and strategies which can be employed to identity and arrest them. If employed correctly as preventive measures, they can increase the profits by approximately 5-7%, which in other words is the same amount of percentage which is lost due to the fraudulent and corrupt activities.
Vehicle move on unauthorized routes to avoid toll taxes and drivers pockets the amount meant for the purpose by production of fake receipts. This practice has been found to be a major contributing factor towards accidents and can nullify a host of good operations at Branch, Zonal or Regional level. The accident devour a major portion of the profits as it involves repairing or writing off a vehicle, loss of the load and its consequent payment to the client, third party payments, medical expenses for treatment and the legal processes and encumbrance. At times, the driver loses his life. Good Companies mitigate the risk on life loss by covering the drivers and third party through insurance. The accident settlement amounts runs into huge sums. The inflated way side repair bills, receiving commissions and kickbacks are a common practice employed both by the OEMs and dealing staff. Inflating of the bills by drivers for recovery operations and repairs at local level during movement is also common. At time the bills are absent as the payments made for accidents are difficult to be accounted for. They also include sums paid for bribery for getting some administrative work done.
