We want to transport the animals under optimum conditions, keeping their exposure to weather conditions to a minimum. For this reason, we operate closed, air-conditioned livestock lorries. Thanks to their fully enclosed construction, the animals are not subjected to disturbing outside influences so they reach their destinations in a calmer state. This is good for the welfare of animals as well as benefitting all the parties concerned.
Each trailer floor features built-in sensors that enable the driver to view and adjust the temperature from the cab. Moreover, our lorries have drinking systems, height-adjustable roofs and a loading lift that in some cases features a weighing system.Our drivers are specially trained to be permitted to transport livestock. They constantly attend to the hygiene and welfare of the animals.
An advanced, modern GPS tracking system continuously follows our livestock lorries, enabling us to help our drivers avoid adding unnecessary mileage to their journeys and to cut CO2 emissions at the same time. Through TRACES, we and the consignee have a good picture of the travelling livestock. This TRAde Control and Expert System (TRACES) is the European certification system that follows all flows of animals in Europe.
During the long-distance transport of livestock, only approved control posts may be used for a compulsory stopover for animals to be let out and cared for. PALI Group has its own control post at Oud-Turnhout in Belgium. Baltic Control recognises this post (for the European Commission) as a High Quality Control Post (HQCP) and EU control post under registration number BE-SP125. This HQCP quality label provides an additional guarantee of the quality of our services.
At the same location as the official control post – Zlatnická 1124/7 PRAHA 1 ‐ NOVÉ MĚSTO,110 00 PRAHA 1, CZECHIA – we also have a weighbridge and a C&D facility. The 18-metre-long weighbridge has a maximum capacity of 70 tons. The weighbridge and the registered facility for Cleansing and Disinfection (C&D) are open 24 hours a day.
