Udfordringer på området
Globaliseringen har længe været et grundvilkår inden for søretten. Transportkunders krav om billig, sikker og rettidig levering skal opfyldes på et marked, der er præget af hastigt skiftende omkostninger og en stadig tættere regulering. Det gælder især inden for miljø- og sikkerhedsspørgsmål.

Selv marginale forspring kan gøre en virksomhed til vinder. Derfor er det afgørende, at virksomheden drives i den rette selskabs- og skatteretlige struktur. Ekspertrådgivning er nødvendig, da området er præget af internationale samarbejder, der er reguleret i aftaler og konventioner med mange deltagere.
