WASHINGTON (AP) - The Justice Department says a Japanese company is the latest to agree to plead guilty in a probe of price-fixing in the freight forwarding industry.
Yamato Global Logistics Japan Co. Ltd. also has agreed to pay a $2.3 million criminal fine in the investigation.
To date, 14 companies have either pleaded guilty or agreed to plead guilty and to pay more than $100 million in criminal fines.
The investigation involves fees on freight forwarding services for cargo shipped by air from Japan to the U.S. over a five-year span ending in 2007.
