We assisted BnB Group, a rapidly expanding logistics company in Lithuania, in a dispute with a Latvian customs broker and Russian customs regarding a customs debt. The debt was imposed on our client for failing to deliver a cargo to customs within transit terms. The cargo was stolen using a scam scheme. Eventually, an amicable solution with the customs broker was reached on reasonable compensation.
