Getting The Deal Through - Ports & Terminals 2017 is the second edition of this publication published by Law Business Research Ltd. in London. Our firm has contributed to the publication of Getting The Deal Through – Ports & Terminals 2017, which provides for an international comparison of legal concepts throughout 25 jurisdictions, and which provides answers to a large number of questions of relevance for an initial judgment in the environment of ports and terminals in those respective countries. 

Ports and terminals form the hubs in – sometimes in a negative way – the logistic chain. The rising of new economies and globalization have led to an increased volume of cargo going through the logistics chain. The latter on its turn has led to a changing environment of bigger vessels with extra draught and a changing demand for ports and terminals. The choice of shippers and carriers to use particular ports and terminals is led by a number of factors, like amongst others the response times, a minimum of interruptions and a maximum efficiency of applied means are of a crucial nature. Of course all parts in the supply chain benefit from a smooth operation. The same also has led to various different legal consequences connected with ports and terminals’ services, as well as regarding the division of responsibilities in the logistics chain.
