Attorney Michael Devereux vast experience as a general counsel for many corporations has helped clients navigate these complex, interlocking requirements allow us to help you identify and understand those import / export issues applicable to your business, develop and implement compliance plans and processes, and avoid shipment delays, penalties, and other problems. The movement of cargo into, out of, and within the U.S. is subject to domestic and international laws, including the Carriage of Goods by Sea Act and the Warsaw Convention, and associated regulatory requirements. Cargo transport may also be affected by laws, regulations, programs, and policies concerning supply chain security, occupational and transportation safety, and spoiled, lost, and damaged goods. Shippers, carriers, customs brokers, warehouses, freight forwarders, non-vessel-operating common carriers, third-party logistics providers, and others all need to be aware of these requirements.
