Transport and logistics cover a diverse range of areas that play a major role in the Scottish, UK and global economy. It enables the movement of goods, services and people as efficiently as possible. It is a highly regulated area of industry, but we have an significant depth of understanding of these complex issues and can advise businesses on how to develop and grow and how to deal with any problems that they face.
Our transport specialists work across the range of transport infrastructure projects – including rail and road projects, and also at the heart of the transport business – for operators and haulage contractors, solving all the problems that they face.
Our transport operator experts work exclusively on behalf of road haulage operators and have built up a wealth of experience at public inquiries before the Traffic Commissioner. We also deal with road traffic prosecutions at all levels of the courts in Scotland. We advise LGV and PSV drivers, and their employers, on a wide range of matters from general road traffic cases, to, for example, more complex tachograph and construction and ‘use’ cases on a ‘direct’ or ‘causing and permitting’ basis.
Our transport infrastructure experts offer you an experienced, innovative and pro-active service whether road or rail. It was this ability to innovate that resulted in us being the first Scottish law firm to act in relation to the authorisation of a major rail project under the private bill process (Stirling-Alloa-Kincardine Railway Project).
