Transport Lawyer

The logistics sector is dynamic and always moving. Due to globalization of trade, more and more goods are transported many kilometres in different ways. This could include transport by sea, road, rail and air. Many parties such as clients, transporters, forwarders, insurers and recipients are involved in this process. After all, goods are received and re-transported by various parties.

Although this transport process often does not cause any problems for all these parties, sometimes it still can go wrong. When transport comes to a standstill, a delay is made or the cargo is damaged or lost en route, liability questions can arise between parties. Who is responsible and should therefore compensate the damage incurred? And what steps can be taken if a party simply does not meet its commitments? The answer to these questions will first of all have to be found in the web of agreements between all these parties.

In addition to the agreements between the parties, international regulations must be taken into account when dealing with transport law issues. After all, the transport often takes place internationally and thus crosses various national borders. International rules therefore play an important role. The international conventions to be applied depend on the way of transport. For example, the Hague-Visby Rules convention applies to sea transport and the Montreal Convention applies to air transport. For example, the CMR convention is important in road transport.

“During the introduction it immediately became clear to me
that Law & More has a clear plan
of action”

However, not only national borders are crossed by transport law. Various jurisdictions are also entered in connection with transport law. For example, there is a clear overlap between transport law and labour law, contract law, company law and international law. After all, for example, the carrier employs subordinates and orders are given to freight forwarders. In these situations, issues related to transport law can also arise. Are you dealing with such an issue? Then a broad and up-to-date knowledge of matters in the aforementioned areas of law is also important.
