Transportation & Logistics

The U.S./Mexico border region and its international ports of entry create unique practical issues and questions of law for the transportation and logistics industry. ScottHulse’s Transportation & Logistics practice group was created to address these unique issues and questions, and is one of the few law firms in the Borderplex with a practice area devoted specifically to transportation and logistics.

''The transportation industry and the laws and regulations governing the industry are complex and constantly evolving. We work proactively with our clients on matters ranging from safety and environmental issues to damage claims, freight regulations, and labor and employment law.''

The transportation and logistics industry is often seen as the backbone of global commerce. However, the industry itself, and the laws and regulations governing the industry, are constantly evolving. Areas of the transportation and logistics industry that are constantly in flux range from safety and environmental issues to damage claims, freight regulations, and labor and employment law. ScottHulse is dedicated to meeting its clients’ needs in this ever evolving area of the law.
