Federal Contractor Misconduct Database (FCMD)
AFMS LLC v. UPS and FedEx (Antitrust)
Shipping services company AFMS Logistics Management Group alleges that UPS and FedEx colluded to prevent customers from using third-party consultants to negotiate lower shipping rates. The lawsuit claims that FedEx and UPS announced on the same day in October 2009 that they would no longer work with third-party consultants, which constituted price-fixing, restraint of trade and an attempt to establish monopoly power in violation of antitrust laws.
