Transport and logistics impact almost every business in every sector. They form a critical part of the business and consumer supply chain. Transport and logistics may be integral to your revenues as a service provider or infrastructure owner or operator; or may form a very significant cost to your business if you are a user of transport and logistics services. Either way, transport and logistics have an enormous impact on the risk profile of businesses operating in Australia.
As a sector, transport and logistics covers a range of things – the four modes (road, rail, aviation and shipping, each with their related infrastructure) as well as intermodal, warehouse logistics, supply chain management arrangements and procurement. And each of these aspects is undergoing continual strategic, economic and legal change, including increasingly complex regulation.
Our Transport and Logistics team works closely with both providers and users of transport and logistics services and with owners, operators and users of transport and logistics infrastructure, across the major modes, across a range of industries, in the private and public sectors. Our team's industry knowledge, expertise and experience covers both transport and logistics specific advice – as well as the key related areas of IT, environment, property, workplace relations and dispute resolution – to ensure seamless service and to help clients manage their transport and logistics related risks.
