Turkish Cargo pays utmost care and attention to ensure the most appropriate conditions for the animals being transported.  It ensures that live animals are transported with attention and specialized approach to their destinations in a safe and secure manner.  Our dedicated staff members, who are IATA LAR (Live Animal Regulations) certificated, are fully equipped in terms of live animals transportation. Besides, they are familiar with continuously updated knowledge in respect to the statutory sanctions applied by the countries where they serve.

Live animals are hosted within the live animal accommodation and care rooms which embody the shelters equipped with the remote-controlled temperature and humidity monitoring system.  Live animals are fed in accordance with the instructions of the shipper and as requested by the attendants during their accommodation.

The documentation, packaging, labeling and marking guidelines as specified under the IATA LAR are applied. Other requests of shippers during the course of the transportation are considered separately.
