Modes to Transport Your Pets Globally
If you are thinking of carrying your pet in the cabin of an airplane, then that’s not possible. That’s because of the size and weight of the animals and the safety of the passengers, there are restrictions on carrying them along. However, there are three ways by which any travel agency can make your furry friend fly internationally.
- By Air
When it comes to international pet shipping, the best way to transport your pets is via airways. The pet guardians should opt for this way for fast delivery without any hassle. The airlines allow the safest travel of live domestic animals in three ways including:
- Fly in Cabin
- Fly as Accompanied Baggage
- Fly as Manifested Cargo
- By Ships
The live animals can also be transported via ships as cargo with care. The pet shipping should be done by an experienced team. Special comfortable containers are designed to carry your pets from one place to another.
- By Land
If you have to relocate your pets locally, then traveling by road is the best way. Specially designed comfortable cages are used to transport pets from one place to another in trucks, vans, or similar as per the size and weight of your pet. It is done similar to the door-to-door cargo in Qatar.
