Transport

The Transport Law Team provides legal advice to transport operators including transport companies, fleet operators, owner drivers, employed drivers, couriers and taxi proprietors. We provide advice on all legal issues arising in the operation of a transport service. We also act for National Road Carriers, New Zealand’s leading transport industry association and provide advice to their members.

We provide advice in the following areas:

    • road user charges – prosecutions/infringements- enquiries
    • driving offences – breath/blood alcohol - serious driving offences
    • driving hours – logbooks - prosecutions
    • owner driver contracts – drafting - dispute resolution
    • cartage contracts - drafting - dispute resolution
    • licensing
    • Carriage of Goods Act
    • employment contract – drafting
    • personal grievances
    • civil disputes including debt collecting

We regularly attend court throughout New Zealand defending transport operators charged with breaches of the Road User Charges Act, Transport Act, Land Transport Act, Heavy Motor Vehicle Regulations and other relevant legislation.
