Global logistics and distribution lawyers

Every business needs to get its goods and services to market as efficiently as possible. In these difficult economic times, logistics companies have an increasingly important role to play in helping businesses manage and control their local and international supply chains and to reduce costs.

Eversheds Sutherland has a thorough knowledge of the logistics industry and a strong track record of advising some of the world’s leading logistics providers, such as DHL, TNT and NYK Logistics. We set the standards in the largest, most demanding and complex of outsourcing transactions in the logistics sector.

Outsourcing and IT lawyers for your logistics project

Outsourcing all or part of the logistics function is often a key component in any delivery model. However, delivery models are increasingly complex and innovative.

At Eversheds Sutherland, we understand that the ‘one size fits all’ approach to outsourcing no longer works and have developed a team of experienced lawyers  that can offer a bespoke approach to your logistics outsourcings. We have a great deal of experience of supporting our clients in high-value, complex and cross-border outsourcing transactions across the infrastructure sector. We provide support across the whole deal life cycle for large scale outsourcing projects.

With the technology landscape changing rapidly, it is vital to try and keep pace with the emerging technologies redefining the world and regulatory frameworks we operate in. As technology develops, we are challenged to be creative to identify options, to find innovative solutions, to enable the pursuit of technological and business goals while retaining control of risk. This is where Eversheds Sutherland excels.
