AIB Internacional transports 356 live bovine
MAY 28, 2015: AIB Internacional has led the transport of 356 live Guzerá Breed Bovine en route for Senegal, Africa. With the objective of improving the genetic dairy bovine in African countries, AIB International piloted the shipments of live animals with a total weight of 160,000 kg of which most female bovines are pregnant. The Guzerá Breed Bovine was chosen since it is a rustic and resistant breed to be domesticated in Senegal. The special shipments were transported using two 747-700 aircrafts which departed from NATAL – Rio Grande do Norte and São Paulo, Brasil. AIB Internacional has prepared all the necessary equipment’s and customized solutions to make the shipment possible since Rio Grande do Norte has never beforehand exported livestock animals preceding the shipment. Meeting the IATA Live Animal Regulations which concerns the transport of live animal cargo by air, custom made crates were prepared together with some rudimentary installation of bales in the airport. Cristiano Lima, CEO of AIB Internacional, managed and directed the completion of shipment and accompanied the cargo flight from Brasil to Africa. AIB Internacional was honored to perform a key role throughout the unique animal consignment. Seeking more X2 partners in 8 additional African countries namely Senegal, Ivory Coast, Guinea, Conakry, Equatorial Guinea, Mauritania, Angola, Benin and Burkina Faso, AIB Internacional is looking forward for another successful 120 live animal cargo operation to Senegal. This shipment is expected to depart in 60 days due to the quarantine.
