Intradco Global offers a comprehensive service when it comes to transporting animals, which include horses, cattle, pigs, sheep, chickens and exotics such as rhinos and giraffes.
The air charter expert builds specialist stalls to accommodate different species and goes to great lengths to keep them comfortable on board (for instance regular temperature checks). It also assists with loading and unloading, which takes place in a quiet environment to avoid scaring the animals.
Horse shipping agents, competition organisers and trainers also trust the firm to coordinate expert animal handlers to accompany their precious cargo. It sources only the best from an established global network of professional flying grooms, all of whom are Animal Transport Association (ATA) approved and have a minimum of 10 years’ experience flying horses.
Charlie’s father, Eddie McMullen, established Intradco Global over 30 years ago, shipping the first animals in 1989. By 2016, it was flying 3,000 horses a year.
Charlie added: “We’ve faced challenges throughout the Covid-19 pandemic like most companies but have invested heavily in infrastructure and remote communications to position ourselves for global expansion. This pandemic has highlighted how critical air freight is to the global market. It may not be glamorous, but it is essential, and we have seen increased appreciation from many clients of the flexibility that air charters can offer them. Despite the current uncertainties, we are looking forward an exciting 2021.”
