Transport law is a very specific area of law. It covers every form of logistics and the issues are often urgent, for example if the transport of perishable goods grinds to a halt or suffers delay. In such situations losses can arise immediately and these have to be prevented as much as possible. Transport law often involves at least three parties, thus causing a complex interplay of rights and obligations. On top of that, other logistic service providers are involved such as forwarding agents, stevedores, warehousing, etc.
