What Is Transportation Law?
Transportation law covers all manner and methods of moving goods from one
place to another. There are many pieces that make up transportation, from
the vehicles used, to the cargo moved, to the regulations that cover them.
Transportation laws are broad, as they not only govern businesses, but
also the infrastructure that supports these companies, such as ports,
roads, highways, and airports.
Our corporate clients include:
- Steamship lines
- Trucking companies
- Freight forwarders (surface, air, and ocean)
- Transportation brokers
- Moving and storage companies
We represent these companies in their contract and litigation matters and
in compliance actions involving government regulatory agencies such as
the Surface Transportation Board and the Florida Department of Transportation.
Laws & Regulations
The regulations regarding transportation come from federal agencies.
These administrative agencies exist to regulate different facets of federal
transportation law, and include:
- The U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT)
- The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA)
- The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB)
- The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA)
- The Federal Railroad Administration (FRA)
Many of these agencies set guidelines that establish overall transportation
policies for the United States.
