Companies engaged in the commercial transportation of freight, are by necessity engaging in a series of contracts with shippers, carriers, consignees, and logistics providers. Transportation related businesses with foresight appreciate the very real commercial value of utilizing well drafted contracts prepared by counsel having experience with transportation related issues. Even the repeated use of well prepared form contracts can afford protection and savings to a business that can be valued in the millions of dollars.
Our most prudent clients take advantage of our experience and, especially with respect to brokers and logistics companies, have us prepare or revise contracts applicable to all parties to a transportation transaction, tariffs, terms and conditions, incorporated terms and bills of lading. The best time to have your form contracts reviewed and revised is, of course, before the unexpected occurs, not afterwards.
