Customs, foreign trade and VAT law often involves transport law.
The type of contract is crucial
Every business transaction involves a specific type of contract (e.g. freight contracts, forwarding contracts, storage contracts). There are pitfalls associated with all of them.
International agreements especially apply to cross-border trade. These include the CMR (international road transport); COTIF/CIM (international rail transport); MC/WC (international air transport) and CMNI (international inland waterway transport).
Many logistics providers base their services on the German Freight Forwarders' Standard Terms and Conditions (ADSp).
