Modern logistics and supply chains are complex, with contracts of carriage often negotiated on a door-to-door basis and thus involve a chain of different modes of carriage as well as a succession of specialist carriers all of which are often arranged by freight forwarders for the shipper of the goods.

International freight forwarders may therefore face claims which are directed against them. The team at Fichte & Co. can assist in handling possible claims as well as advise on or draft contracts to minimize liability in the future. Fichte & Co offer expert advice on customs processing, procurement from suppliers, logistics services, transport, storage/warehouse & distribution, freight forwarding, cargo claims and insurance.
