However you distribute your products, Virtual In-House Solicitor (VIHS) is here to offer legal solutions

The process of distribution and logistics can be complex and multi-faceted, and you have to put your faith in the carriers that your products will be delivered to their destination in the same condition that they left you, and they have to be delivered on time.

If you use external distribution networks, your reputation is in their hands, so protecting your brand from damage at the hands of a third party is not only prudent, but critical. For distribution within the EU in particular, exclusive distribution agreements exist, with hefty fines for non-compliance.

Here at Virtual In-House Solicitor (VIHS) we have a team of outsourcing law experts who can help you to navigate the complexities inherent in distribution channels, and assist you with any necessary legal documentation, policies and procedures.

We’ll help you set expectations and standards so that your distribution partners understand exactly what you need from them, and how to deal with stock returns, or unforeseen delays, for example.

As an exporter of machinery across the EU, we routinely use external carriers to transport our goods to wholesale distribution centres across Europe. Without the service level agreements you helped us to put in place, we would be at a much greater risk from any negative performance issues from with our transport partners. Your advice has given our supply chain a degree of certainty and stability that we didn’t have before.
