A growing market subject to increasing regulatory requirements.
Keeping goods moving is essential for doing business globally. Logistics operators often work across geographical borders – and are also responsible for ensuring that increasingly complex regulations are observed both nationally and internationally.
These regulations are just as diverse and innumerable as the number of transport routes and modes of transport themselves. Whether goods are transported by air, road, water or rail, there are a wide range of challenges to overcome. Who, for example, is liable to the client if the subcontracted haulage company loses the goods? Or if a delivery from abroad is damaged, under which jurisdiction is the haulage company liable?
To help logistics companies with their planning, it is crucial that they have reliable systems in place to efficiently manage claims and collect what they are owed. At the same time, it is important to keep the haulage company’s liability as low as possible.
We regularly help our clients with these and other matters in the area of transport and shipping law.
Haulage companies, carriers, logistics companies and trading companies rely on our services.
