The OFAC release [PDF 20 KB] reports that the New Jersey-based company facilitated the export of goods to Sudan by coordinating and supervising shipment of goods from Egypt to Sudan. 

There were certain “aggravating factors” including that the company acted with “reckless disregard” for U.S. sanctions requirements when it made two exports to Sudan after being made aware that it might be subject to restrictions under U.S. sanctions. It was further found that the company’s general manager for the region was aware of and involved in the conduct giving rise to the violations. 

The company, on discovering the violations, took certain remedial actions.
