The GLOBALG.A.P. Livestock Transport Standard

Animal welfare during livestock transport from farm to farm and from farm to slaughter is crucial. Certified livestock producers are required to transport their farm animals using certified haulers.

The GLOBALG.A.P. Livestock Transport Standard sets the framework for transporting companies to get certified, and assists livestock producers in finding GLOBALG.A.P. certified transporters. The Standard covers the transport of all types of livestock and applies to all operators and vehicles transporting animals over distances of more than 65 km and for third-party transport covering distances less than 65 km.

GLOBALG.A.P. certified farmers who transport livestock over distances less than 65 km must comply with the requirements defined in the IFA Livestock Base Section 9 (Livestock Dispatch). The Livestock Transport Standard applies to road vehicle transports. It excludes transports via airplane and/or ship except for roll-on/roll-off ferries.
