Air freight transport of pets to Polynesia: the Autorité de la concurrence fines a company for abuse of a dominant position


Following a report transmitted by the French Directorate General for Competition Policy, Consumer Affairs and Fraud Control (DGCCRF) and an investigation conducted with the assistance of the Polynesian Competition Authority in the air cargo transport of pets sector, the Autorité fined the company Goldenway International Pets (GIP) the amount of 65,000 euros for abuse of a dominant position.

By linking the quarantine service, in which it has a de facto monopoly, with two other services related to road transport and the organisation of air freight transport, GIP has created a leverage effect and prevented competition to the detriment of competitors and consumers.
