In an interview this week, Rapaport Group chairman Martin Rapaport states banning all EGLs was necessary because not everyone can distinguish between them.
“Some of them may be better, but they are all under the same banner,” Rapaport says. “How is the consumer supposed to tell the difference? It is time for the legitimate EGLs to change their name. You can’t expect the consumer to tell the difference between EGL USA and EGL International.”
He says he decided to take this action because he felt the industry was enabling a “culture of misrepresentation.”
