In our logistics sector there is a growing trend towards more prevention and greater legal certainty. We are increasingly confronted with far-reaching logistics contracts and general terms and conditions. The far-reaching liability of logistics service providers in the area of customs, VAT, etc. requires proper support.
As an interest group, FORWARD Belgium wants to support its members by offering a free legal QuickScan in which general terms and conditions and contracts are scrutinised. This allows us to whether you, as a company, are sufficiently covered against the risks that you face on a daily basis.
"The far-reaching liability of logistics service providers requires proper support.”
During this first general screening, we will have a personal discussion about:
Your legal status
Your use of general terms and conditions
Basic screening of your logistics contracts
