Transport & logistics

The transport and logistics sector plays a major role in the global economy. In the UK, it employs over 2.5 million people with the logistics industry by itself worth over £75 billion to the country. Although affected by the economic downturn over the past few years, the sector has recovered well and businesses in the sector are looking for new opportunities.

Boyes Turner draws on its knowledge, experience and long-standing interest in the transport and logistics industry to support clients in aviation services, supply chain and logistics, engineering and manufacturing.

Aviation services

Based in the heart of the Thames Valley and on the doorstep of one of the busiest airports in the world, Boyes Turner continues to grow its services in this dynamic and fast-paced sector.

Whether it is the design and manufacture of aircraft parts, business process outsourcing, implementation of airport IT systems or aircraft maintenance, so much of what makes this vibrant industry tick goes on behind the scenes. Boyes Turner focuses on these market players, providing tailored advice and assistance from lawyers who understand the jargon, the pressures and the commercial issues facing those who operate in the aviation sector.

Supply chain & logistics

The need for accurate, timely and efficient distribution management to meet the demands not only of the consumer retail market place, including e-commerce sales but also business-to-business sales has never been greater.

Boyes Turner has a wealth of experience in advising clients on effective resource management - whether that is staffing, vehicle use or warehouse floor space, the negotiation of warehousing and distribution agreements and the sensitive issues of service provision changes and service levels as well as handling in relation to storage, handling and delivery of goods.

With a client base ranging from waste water management to healthcare and specialist pharma products and consumer goods distribution, the firm is able to zero in on the key issues, providing effective commercial advice.

Engineering & manufacturing

Boyes Turner plays an active role in advising engineering and manufacturing companies in the Thames Valley and beyond. The firm’s experience covers oil and gas, automotive, aviation, military and other precision engineering and manufacturing activities. 

Boyes Turner takes time to understand clients’ businesses in order to grasp the key drivers on legal strategy and the nuts and bolts of everyday delivery. The aim is to help them make the very best of their opportunities and to continue to grow whilst protecting their valuable intellectual property and other assets in an ever more competitive and demanding world.
