Logistics company Cruisin’ On Inc., which does business as The Produce Network and Diamond Produce Wholesalers & Packers Inc., faces a Perishable Agricultural Commodities Act complaint for unpaid shipments.

The Miami-based company allegedly failed to pay $1.19 million to five produce sellers for shipments received from May 2016 through September 2017, according to a U.S. Department of Agriculture news release.

Cruisin’ On can request a hearing; if the USDA finds it violated the PACA, it would be barred from being a licensee for three years, or two years with a USDA-approved surety bond.

Principals would also be unable to be employed by or affiliated with PACA licensees for two years, or one year with a surety bond, according to the release.

How are people guilty of this not arrested? We need more stiff penalties for companies that cheat the system!

Totally agree, would love to have an easily accessible web site or platform to put them up on a pedestal for all to see. They will just come back in 2-3 years and do it all over again
