Transportation of animals: rules and features

According to the terminology of the international rules for the transportation of the special cargo one should not focus on the transportation of the live loads but on the delivery of “live animals”, which according to the international classification are animals (mammals), birds, reptiles, fish and amphibians. And every kind of these live animals can be divided into the various categories such as mammals – to the laboratory animals and fur-bearing animals, fish – to the fish seed or for the purpose of its acclimatization, and so on.

By the broad and conventional sense the large and small animals, horned and cloven-hoofed, fur-bearing and laboratory animals, birds, bees, crabs, snakes and so on are included to the living cargo. A particular difficulty of their transportation is that every kind of the living animals requires the compliance with the separate rules and conditions of the transportation. For example:

  • live animals are accepted for the transportation only in the presence of the veterinary permits, and in some cases permits of the quarantine service;
  • non-hazardous laboratory animals are transported in the special disposable cells, and if they are the carriers of the infection – even with the special precautions prescribed in the regulations;
  • crabs and live fish for the breeding and acclimatization, as well as fish seed and the impregnated roe are transported only with an accompanying person; and bees are transported unaccompanied if they are transported in the sturdy plywood boxes with the ventilation holes of the allowable size.

And there are so many such specific requirements for the transportation of the various types of live animals that even the experts sometimes confuse them. But not ours. Our staff knows all the specifics of each type of the transportation of the live load and provides the delivery without the damage to its state.
