Migliaia di animali vengono quotidianamente trasportati in Europa e verso Paesi Terzi per macellazione, ingrasso e riproduzione.
Le condizioni di trasporto durante questi viaggi variano molto. Per supportare gli operatori (es. allevatori, trasportatori) nel migliorare il benessere animale, un consorzio composto da 16 partner sta sviluppando delle Guide alle buone/migliori pratiche
per il trasporto degli animali nel quadro di un progetto pilota della DG Santé.
Le guide includono indicazioni per il trasporto di bovini, equini, suini, pollame e ovini. Saranno pronte entro la fine del 2018.
