Means of transportation:
Animals are transported in suitable crates. which are very strong to hold the animals and not give way during transportation and those crates have been tested on previous, small quantity deliveries. Almost all livestock shipments are by sea on specially designed and outfitted livestock vessels. Packing list for sea and air as they need to maximize but not compromise animal welfare. We take pride in making sure that livestock is treated humanely because most of our customers are concerned that they are processed in a Halal manner. We are also concerned about their welfare on the journey.
The typical length of the journey to GCC countries is less than one week via ship. To most of those states, the voyage is less than 3 days.
For air transport, pending on the quantity can be delivered via charter. and we have a partnership relationship with a charter cargo airline in the region.
