News Vinge participates in the Logistics Podcast

April 30, 2020

Paula Bäckdén, advokat, participates as the first lawyer in the 6-year history of The Logistics Podcast, and talks about transport law.

Logistics becomes easier with law. Playing by the same set of rules makes it easier for all parties. That was Paula Bäckdén’s message when she participated in the Logistics Podcast on 30 April:

Life is of course easier for you as a carrier if the area in which you conduct your logistics operations – if it is the world of maritime transports and specific areas for road transports - if you know that the same rules apply in relation to the carrier's responsibility as for the cargo in question.

The logistics podcast is a podcast for questions in respect of logistics, transport and supply chain management. Here you can listen to the section.

Participants:

Paula Bäckden, advokat, Vinge’s Transport Law Practice Group

Per Olof Arnäs, PhD in logistics, specializing in questions regarding the digitalization of logistics
