Transport and Logistics deal with issues pertaining to movements of goods and passengers from one destination to the other (domestically or internationally) by road, rail, air and sea. Warehousing, on the other hand, focuses on contractual and legal obligations of parties in storage, goods managements, inventories and processing. These areas also deal with the legal position and obligations as well as the limitation of liability of forwarding agents or freight forwarding agents.
