What do typical risk situations in the livestock and meat sector look like?

The spectrum of hazards in animal transport extends from medical costs due to traffic accidents to theft and robbery of valuable animals, such as breeding animals. Even in optimally secured specialised trailers serious injuries can occur in case of an accident.

What do typical damage examples in the livestock and meat sector look like?

Loading and unloading

During loading and unloading animals may panic, cause property damage and injure themselves as well as injuring others.

Refrigerated transports

During transport the refrigeration unit breaks down. The mandated refrigeration temperature is exceeded with the result that the recipient refuses to take delivery of the goods. Considerable property damage is caused.

In the production operation

In sausage production, for instance, pieces of metal get into goods. The production charge has to be recalled, giving rise to liability and financial damages.

Means of transport

Due to an accident the animals suffer serious injuries.
