Livestock transport

Quality assurance from farm to shop means: Transport companies that transport cattle, pigs or poultry within the QS scheme must also have QS approval.

In the transport of livestock, the safety and welfare of the animals have top priority, and the considerate and humane treatment of animals during transport is all-important. In addition, care is taken to ensure that all transports are carried out by qualified personnel and are properly documented. The vehicles used must comply with the national and EU regulations on livestock transport.
