Cargolux handles a record number of horses in 2018
Jan 31, 2019: All cargo carrier Cargolux has reported 15.7 percent increase in live animal transportations in 2018, building new record in its CV alive solution, the company’s specialized product designed for the transport of live animals.
Notably, within the total amount of live animals the company transported last year, the number of horses is particularly impressive. It saw 30 percent surge in the number of equines handled by Cargolux. The carrier handled 2600 horses last year, compared to 2000 horses in 2017.
Christian Theis, Cargolux’s Global Product manager for CV alive reflects on the achievement: “As a company committed to animal welfare, we intend to keep positively developing this product in full compliance with all international regulations as well as our stringent internal policies.”
A statement from Cargolux tells us that horses represent a non-negligible 50 percent of the total amount of live animals handled by the company annually.
Cargolux utilises state-of-the-art HMC horse stalls that provide increased stability with a double layer pallet base that reduces the motion feeling for the horses, greatly reducing the stress the animals feel compared to traditional single layer pallets.
Its fleet of purpose-built 747 aircraft is also equipped with multi-zone air-conditioning systems that can be adapted to suit any animal’s environment throughout the flight.
The airline has a growing list of items it refuses to carry for ethical reasons and is actively engaged against the illegal trade of wild animals.
Cargolux operates in full compliance with the IATA Live Animal Regulations (LAR) and the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species (CITES). Cargolux is also a member of IPATA (International Pet and Animal Transportation Association) and IATA LAPB (IATA Live Animal and Perishable Board) as well as a signatory of the United for Wildlife International Taskforce on the Transportation of Illegal Wildlife Products.
