Zoological Transport

Please Note. Some of the information on this page is out of date but we are in the process of updating it. If you have any questions please contact us.

Animal Transport is our speciality so whether you have an Anteater or a Zebra to transport, we watch them every step of the way. 

Zoo Specimens represent a keystone in the conservation of a number of endangered species, which means that their welfare during transport is a priority to everyone involved.  When moving these rare and often beautiful species time and handling is kept to an absolute minimum in order to avoid stress. Our staff are experienced, courteous and above all, knowledgeable.

At JCS Livestock we offer a number of services to help your exotic species travel easier, depending on your requirements:

  • IATA approved flight containers
  • Collection from anywhere in the United Kingdom in our temperature controlled quarantine approved van or quarantine approved trailer.
  • European road transport.
  • Reservation of cargo space with your preferred carrier to your destination   
  • Import and Export Customs and documentation formalities

JCS Livestock also has a world wide network of overseas agents who specialize in the movement of live animals and pet travel, and like ourselves are members of IATA, AATA and IPATA.  We are licensed for quarantine movements by DEFRA and are well equipped for emergency quarantine moves, transhipment licence applications and movements under rabies licences.  We are also licensed for Long Distance Road Travel under type 2 EU Council Regulation (EC) No1/2005.
