The superstructure of the livestock vehicles has 5 levels. Each level has nipple-drinkers so that the animals can get enough water, can be heated, so that the drinking water does not freeze. In the summer heat fans exchange the hot air and cool down the animals. The temperature monitoring, which can be controlled from the drivers cab, always creates the optimum transport conditions for the animals and thus prevents damage to their health. Our fleet of vehicles impresses with its equipment: GPS location and Navigation devices, Temperature monitoring (ventilation, watering). Our vehicles are designed with the focus on animal welfare.
The vehicles have slip-proof flooring and drinking water facilities for the animals. Wood chips are spread on the floor before every transport. The pigs are given ample space as compliance with the EU Regulation on “the protection of animals during transport” is ensured during the transport planning phase.
During long-distance transports lasting more than 8 hours, the animals are naturally given the statutory rest periods and are fed.
The drivers are highly trained, both in driving the large heavy goods vehicles concerned and in the transport and handling of pigs. A good many of them have years of experience in the international transport of pigs over long distances to a variety of countries.
