Transport & Logistics

Transport and logistics industries operate across the globe, all day, every day. Rationalisation, increasing competitiveness, globalisation, corporate risk management and climate change are just some of the many challenges facing the sector.

Piper Alderman understands these issues and provides a wide spectrum of legal services to road, rail, land, shipping and aviation logistics service providers, insurance, mining and resources, banking and trading communities.

We are an adviser to the passenger bus sector throughout Australia. Our team provides a comprehensive service to suppliers and individual operators across Australia, advising state public passenger service contracts, subcontracts, shareholder agreements, asset acquisitions and disposals, due diligence, probity and privacy issues, IP, distribution agreements, terms and conditions of supply, warranties and indemnities, transfer duty, WHS and PPSA issues.

Our projects and infrastructure lawyers have experience in advising governments, developers, principals and financiers, as well as contractors and suppliers, on complex procurement strategies, tendering, contract drafting, contract negotiation and contract administration on a number of Australia’s largest rail and road infrastructure projects, road transport projects and logistics projects, as well as in relation to the procurement (and the operation and maintenance) of rail rolling stock.
