In many parts of the world, corruption is common and a part of everyday life. Apart from the corrosive effect this has on quality of service and availability of appropriate justice, this also has a negative effect on commerce. Reputable companies and people are unable to compete so the market is left to others who are willing to ignore the laws put in place to prevent corruption. Where this occurs, the economy suffers due to lack of investment which eventually contributes to poverty, pollution and poor health for the majority of the people who do not profit from corrupt activities. This is the type of environment where fuel fraud can flourish. In this latest blog, Tracerco will discuss how the implementation of a fuel marking program can help in the fight against fuel corruption.

Counterfeiting, duty evasion and other forms of illicit trade are a substantial and growing problem across all market sectors, leading to increased calls for businesses to make use of highly secure product and brand authentication programmes.

Estimates of the global value of counterfeit and illicit product sales vary widely. As the trade is illegal, official records of sales are not published so estimates of the sales of counterfeiting differ significantly. However, the undisputable fact is that all the estimates come up with staggering numbers representing a significant proportion of the global economy. Current estimates range from around US$700 bn per year (Havoscope) to US$1.7 trillion (ICC).  This totally unregulated trade impacts everyone; brand owners, governments, consumers and the environment.
