Anti-illicit cigarette trade and fighting illegal tobacco requires comprehensive investigative skill sets and networks for an anti-illicit trade (AIT) investigation team because it is mainly linked to local and international organized crime and terrorist organizations for crossing borders, shipments, logistics, producing counterfeit cigarettes, printing fake packs, and banderole.
Globally, the black market takes shares of at least one out of 10 cigarettes, costing billions of USD annually to multinational tobacco companies such as Japanese Tobacco International, British American Tobacco, Philip Morris International, Imperial Tobacco, and local governments.
Weak penalties, poor border controls, low arrest rates, corruption, and high tobacco tax disparity between neighboring countries are the fundamental causes behind illegal tobacco, counterfeit, and illicit cigarettes. For all the above-given reasons, the illicit cigarette trade is a global problem that has increased considerably every year.
