National Air Cargo of Orchard Park, New York, has admitted defrauding the Defense Department out of million of dollars.
The company agreed to pay $28 million in fines, restitution and forfeitures to resolve charges that it submitted inflated bills to the government. Allegations included charging the government an air cargo delivery rate for equipment that was delivered by truck and overcharging the government for on-time delivery of items that were delivered late.
