Not long ago, industry was the poor child of the Dutch economy. This has changed with the success of Dutch high-tech companies and the revaluation of the traditional manufacturing industry. Industry is a diverse part of the Dutch economy, from high-tech to commodity. In innovative and more dynamic markets, companies face different issues, for example if they want to collaborate with other (Dutch) companies.

Sometimes with modest but mostly with broad interests in the Netherlands and Europe, and also globally. Transport is a sector in which it almost always goes well. But if things go wrong, you are dependent and vulnerable. Your company will suffer immediate damage if your transport - for whatever reason - comes to a standstill. Then you need an expert, someone who can look after your interests to be compensated.

We advise on all forms of transport: road, inland shipping, sea, air, rail and combined transport. Our transport and logistics lawyers also focus on related topics such as forwarding, custody, storage and transshipment, commercial purchase and documentary credits. They act for all parties in the logistics chain.
