Intradco Global transports pedigree Holstein dairy cattle from the EU to the Middle East

Intradco Global has flown a number of pedigree Holstein dairy cattle from the EU to a Middle Eastern import destination on behalf of a European cattle exporter.

The operation began early in the morning, with the cattle arriving at the airport in certified livestock trucks following their journey from their farm. They were greeted by the Intradco Global team, comprising of Ground Operations Manager Zac Carroll, Live Animal Attendant Charlie Baker, and Cargo Account Manager Hayden Edwards.

The cattle crates were already in place at the airport, having been delivered and prepared in advance of the flight. All that was left was for the cattle to settle into them for their flight. The Intradco Global team employed their specialised cattle loading equipment, which included their industry-leading cattle ramp, to ensure a safe and efficient loading process for both the animals and the team involved.

Loading took just 3 hours from the arrival of the cattle trucks to the moment the last cow was crated. The cattle were then kept in a sheltered facility to enable them to rest calmly and comfortably until the aircraft was ready for loading.

Although many hours of planning go into preparing for the day of the flight the same care and attention is also necessary to coordinate the different paperwork and procedural requirements to ensure customs regulations are met. The Intradco Global team completed this on behalf of the cattle exporter, leaving them safe in the knowledge that the formalities were taken care of by the industry experts.

The cattle arrived safely and in excellent health and are now enjoying their new pastures.

Hayden Edwards said, ““Intradco Global is proud to be a key partner in the Middle East dairy industry’s supply chain, having been involved for many years now. We continue to prove that we are the experts when it comes to live animal transport by air, and another successful transport such as this just shows why our clients trust us to safely their animals time and again.”
