Customs & excise

Parties can also easily assign certain obligations to the buyer or seller by use of an Incoterm. Leeward guides you through the entire process of the international sale or purchase of goods.

In the maritime landscape, the actions of a shipping company are determined by a shipping agent. Leeward assists distributors and intermediaries in all areas, both with regard to the drafting of their agency agreement and in the event of disputes.
