The First Step to Animal Relocation. Our pledge is that the animals come first. 

At JCS Livestock we have a dedicated team who are proficient in moving livestock safely and humanely around the world. Whether it be a tiger for conservation or your child's pet mouse, we will relocate them safely and with the utmost care.


We realise that livestock comes in all shapes and sizes and at JCS Livestock we have handled them all. Whether you are a live tropical fish importer, livestock breeder or pet owner holidaying or relocating abroad, we know how important each animal is to you.


JCS Livestock is a division of James Cargo Services Ltd, established some 20 years ago dealing with world wide freight forwarding for all commodities, from live ornamental fish to batteries.


Since its inception JCS Livestock has dealt with all manner of animals, from earthworms to zebra, all receiving safe, humane transportation whether by air, road or sea.


Our dedicated livestock team are on hand to answer questions and to offer advice and information. We have a close working relationship with the various authorities and can handle all livestock shipments, whether imports or exports.


We have handled many VIP cargo shipments including "Torgamba", a Sumatran rhino relocated from the UK to a sanctuary in Indonesia and "Olive", an osprey who needed help back to The Gambia. We have also assisted in the relocation of 289 birds of prey from the UK to a Birds of Prey Centre in South Carolina, along with their return to the UK.  And obviously pet travel is our speciality!
