Transport and logistics
Without transport, everything grinds to a halt. With this widely publicised slogan of Transport & Logistiek Nederland in mind, our attorneys at law in the transport and logistics practice group advise and litigate on transport in all its modes and forms on a 24/7 basis. Put simply, this not only means transport by sea, inland waters, air, road, rail and pipelines, it also covers related activities and fields such as freight forwarding, storage and transhipment, offshore and ship's agents, damage to cargo, non-consumer sale transactions and documentary credit, ship financing and foreclosure.
Extensive international (litigation) experience
We have extensive experience with litigation and (international) arbitration procedures for UNUM, NAI, ICC, FENEX, UNCITRAL, LMAA and others. Furthermore, we support our clients during negotiations. With the explicit intention of preventing procedures and maintaining commercial relations for the future. Thanks to our litigation experience, we are aware of the bottlenecks and pitfalls you need to take into account when drawing up contracts in the logistics services sector. We work closely together with the attorneys at law specialising in contract law, whose daily work involves drafting and advising on commercial contracts and general terms and conditions.
Broad client base
We act on behalf of all parties active in the logistics and finance ecosystem, such as shipping companies, carriers, P&I clubs, terminal operators, freight forwarders, storage companies, shipbrokers, bunkering companies, shipyards, banks and international trading companies. Our clients also include industry associations for companies active in water engineering & management, port terminal operators and tank storage companies.
