Transport And Logistics Contracts
At London-based Adam Bernard Solicitors, we understand the Transport and Logistics industry. There is more to the industry than road, rail, air and water travel networks. Logistics and supply chain management is a crucial part of the industry which breaks into:
- Freight transportation
- Maritime and port operations
- Postal and courier activities
- Warehousing, storage and handling
Due to this, the transport and logistics sector intersects into most other industries and plays a large role in the economy of the UK. It is said to be worth over £96 billion each year involving over 188,000 companies.
Although successful, the industry has seen mass transformation in the past decade with new technologies and new market entrants, especially through the growth of e-commerce. Most notably, the COVID-19 pandemic had a stark impact on transport and logistics. There have been drastic changes in consumer behaviour: with 61.9% of non-food retail purchases being made online in 2020, compared to just 31.4% the year before (British Retail Consortium). Due to this, there has been increases in demand for land transport and courier services. At Adam Bernard Solicitors, we want to help your transport and logistics business navigate through these changes.
