Why is Arbitration Important in Logistics?



Did you know that Singapore, as a signatory of the New York Convention, ensures that arbitration decisions made here are recognised and enforceable in over 170 countries around the globe? This convention underpins international arbitration and enhances the credibility and enforcement of arbitration outcomes worldwide.

At a recent collaborative event hosted by SLA and the Singapore Chamber of Maritime Arbitration (SCMA), the spotlight was on the profound implications of this convention for the logistics industry. The session delved into the SCMA Rules and their significance in the arbitration landscape. Special thanks to our panelists whose expertise and candid discussions significantly enhanced our knowledge of arbitration’s essential role in fair and efficient dispute resolution.

SLA members gained a deeper understanding of how arbitration serves as an effective tool to resolve commercial disputes within the logistics industry, thereby ensuring smoother operations and continuity. This understanding is crucial in a field where disputes can often become complex and international in scope.
