Trade and logistics

Issues and developments


In times of economic growth, the logistics sector often suffers from a shortage of staff. However, during an economic slowdown, transport companies and logistics service providers have to deal with a staff surplus.


When times are good, there are many commercial enterprises and logistics service providers looking for ways to speed up growth. Often, acquisitions are considered. When considering a takeover, it is important that you call in the right specialists. One of those specialists should most definitely be a lawyer.


In addition, good contract management is generally good advice: if you do business, you have to deal with many different players, especially if you operate internationally.
