Advisory to the Shipping Industry on the Illicit Movement Methods Related to the Trafficking of Fentanyl and Other Synthetic Opioids [open pdf - 937KB]
From the Introduction: "This advisory for our private sector partners will provide approaches at each stage of the international trade supply chain with information that can help identify and prevent the movement of fentanyl and other synthetic opioids into and within the United States. Enlisting the support of private entities by providing information on types and indicators of illicit fentanyl movement and risk assessment approaches in private sector data holdings can provide significant support to law enforcement efforts to disrupt the illicit transportation of fentanyl. These steps to disrupt illicit synthetic opioids, coupled with similar efforts against the marketing, manufacturing and monetary facets of the illicit synthetic opioid trade, is a key part of our strategy to reduce the devastating impact on our communities. Although this communication is labeled as a 'fentanyl' advisory, it applies to all illicit synthetic opioids."
