What Is Transportation Law?

Transportation law covers all manner and methods of moving goods from one place to another. There are many pieces that make up transportation, from the vehicles used, to the cargo moved, to the regulations that cover them. Here at Roberts & Associates we’ve helped numerous clients throughout the US and have successfully handled all aspects of commercial litigation for the carrier industry. Mr. Roberts has won many federal court rulings which are favorable to the transportation industry, both at the trial and appellate businesses, but also the infrastructure that supports these companies, such as ports, roads, highways, and airports.

Our corporate clients include:
– Railroads

– Transportation brokers
– Moving and storage companies

We represent these companies in their contract and litigation matters and in compliance actions – involving government regulatory agencies such as the Surface Transportation Board and the Florida Department of Transportation.

Florida Transportation Laws & Regulations

The regulations regarding transportation come from federal agencies.

These administrative agencies exist to regulate different facets of federal transportation law, and include:
– The U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT)
– The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA)
– The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB)
– The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA)

Many of these agencies set guidelines that establish overall transportation policies for the United States.
