Livestock Transportation and Customer Service Levels
EU legislative framework aims to ensure the welfare of live animals during transport. You must take care to avoid injury and undue suffering of the animals, following specified requirements. This includes fitness of the animals, loading densities, journey and resting times, availability of water and food, transport organisation and requirements that the driver must meet. Your customers expect their haulers to meet those obligations. Failure to do so can lead to hefty fines, which vary across member states, from €25,000 in Germany to €2,000 – €13,000 in Denmark¹. The damage to a haulier’s reputation puts their business in jeopardy, with customers pulling their business to look for responsible transporters. And that’s where you come in.
Transporting livestock and CO₂ emissions
The EU’s Farm-to-Fork strategy launched in 2020. It provides measures and targets for each step along the food chain, including the welfare of animals during transportation. Minimising the time livestock spends on trucks is critical to their health and wellbeing. Of course, you know that. You also know that minimising that time involves planning around the production schedule of the slaughterhouse – or if breeding, accessing farms within agreed time windows and in the right sequence.
Cybersecurity in Livestock Transportation
As the agri-food industry adopts new technologies and becomes more data oriented, their risk of severe cyberattacks increase. The European agricultural standards fail to address cybersecurity risks in general and instead focus on food and nutrition security. But threat scenarios are jarring, ranging from social unrest due to food not moving, to the suffering of livestock.
