Freight and passenger terminals in the rail, marine, trucking and aviation industries frequently interrupt the efficient flow of goods within countries and around the world. Investment in terminals is expected to continue apace, with a view to improving domestic and global supply chains.

Complex regulatory regimes can make investment and participation in the terminal business a significant challenge. With counsel from lawyers who are expert in the field and have deep experience across the transportation industry, their chances for success are greatly increased.

McMillan's Transportation Industry Group delivers experienced legal advice to parties involved directly in or interfacing with terminal in all transportation modes. Our industry specialists work on everything from transactional matters to long-term multi-disciplinary engagements to create ports and other terminal facilities. We have assisted clients with domestic and export terminal handling facilities as well as those relating to bulk commodity handling and container terminal facilities.

  • Negotiating handling agreements for businesses using or operating terminal facilities
  • Advising on port and terminal privatizations
