Transportation and Logistics

The transportation and logistics sector is inextricably linked to all sectors that operate to meet the demand for products and services. As a result, it is critical for businesses in this field to act within the appropriate legal infrastructure. Erdem & Erdem advises companies in this industry on transportation and logistics legislation, guides them in identifying potential difficulties before they emerge, and represents their clients before courts in disputes. Our team carefully manages all contracts in the sector - which includes sea, land, and air transportation and is subject to cross-border legal regulations - and assists national and international clients in establishing the legal infrastructure required to carry out their operations and transport their goods safely. Our team also offers legal advice and support on force majeure risks, guarantees, transportation agreements, customs issues, and client compliance with national and international legislation.

Erdem & Erdem represents many different sector players in their national and international transactions, including transportation companies, logistics cargo companies, vehicle operators, railway companies, airport operators, port and terminal operators, ro-ro ship operators, technical maintenance providers, insurance companies, and financiers. Our team drafts international commercial contracts and charter party agreements. In addition, we provide services relating to Vienna Convention of Sale (CISG) issues, trade restrictions, customs and border security problems, intellectual property disputes, distribution and hedging agreements, bill of lading issues, and goods shipment and land disputes.

Our lawyers assist our clients in the logistics, transportation, and shipping industries before the courts in all types of legal problems they face, combining their local legislation experience with global expertise in multiple areas such as road transport, maritime transport, and aviation. Cases for cargo loss and damage, compensation and recourse lawsuits arising from the carrier's responsibility, lawsuits arising from the CMR and all international conventions, disputes over the transportation of cargo and people, disputes over insurance tariffs, injunctive injunction and enforcement lawsuits, lawsuits arising from contract violations, and lawsuits for damages resulting from accidents are just a few examples. At Erdem & Erdem, we are fully aware of our clients' evolving demands and provide support for their issues arising from a variety of legal fields. In this regard, our experts assist our clients by conducting a comparative analysis of European Union and national legislation on mergers and acquisitions, competition law investigations, compliance programs, contracts, and distribution systems. In addition, we also provide legal consultancy and litigation services to our clients on all issues related to intellectual property law, data protection, tax law and customs legislation.
