Counterfeits sure do like to travel in style. According to Freightwaves, while ocean generally dominates in terms of volumes, it’s not just pharmaceuticals that favour the skies. More than 90% of counterfeit goods seized by US Customs last year travelled by air, more specifically, by express services.
