Transport and Logistics
The transport and logistics industry is central to the evolution of the global marketplace. It’s also a sector that is subject to ever changing legal and regulatory demands that span across the borders of many countries.
Legal awareness in this complex international area of law, implementation of the right procedures and compliance with regulations can save a business not only time, distress and large money losses that are a natural consequence of goods or vehicles being seized by the UK Border Force, but can also limit future issues too.
