Ordering and Payment
CorsoMotion makes best efforts to screen orders using the Denied Persons or Entities list(s). CorsoMotion uses UPS and Visual Compliance, in addition to CorsoMotion's own "banned" list for high risk locations and to reduce fraud.
UPS uses software systems for all of its denied party screening requirements that search over 30 excluded party lists taken from both U.S. and international sources. These systems identify, investigate, and halt shipments with questionable parties immediately upon entry into UPS's shipping systems.
Additionally, CorsoMotion uses Visual Compliance's API for screening against Denied Persons or Entities. Visual Compliance has "the largest, most current and most accurate selection of foreign trade and AML regulatory compliance lists for screening entities and transactions".
