Forwarding Agencies and Carriers

National and international forwarding agencies and carriers are our most frequent clients. We assist these enterprises in their questions on transport law and in shipping matters.

Main fields in this regard are in particular recourse claims and the defense of recourses. Moreover, we should be pleased to assist you in questions of forwarder’s and carrier’s liability and in matters of gross negligence (or so-called “qualifiziertes Verschulden”) to set aside the limit of liability of your opponents.

Other fields in our work are:

  • Liens of the carrier
  • international agreements, e.g. CMR, Warsaw Convention,, Munich Agreement, CIM (rules for contracts concerning the carriage of goods by rail)
  • claims after accidents
  • penalty and monetary fine proceedings (e.g. violation of the driving time requirements)
  • insurance law, driver’s liability and transport insurance

We are in a position to check the claims for stall money you are faced with and whether there is a contributory fault for incorrect declarations of value of the goods.

Are you managing a national or international forwarding agency or are you a carrier? Then please feel free to contact us. We with pleasure will give you a helping hand.
