In particular, the requirements on the protection of animals during transport ("EU Animal Welfare Transport Regulation") must be observed for the carrying of animal transport. The regulation regulates the handling of animals during loading, the need for land and the provision of care for the animals during transport or the duration of transport.

In particular, for animals that are not used to it, any transport is a burden. This applies in particular when the usual supply periods are exceeded. The aim must therefore be to prepare the animals individually for transport and to adapt the duration of transport to the needs of the animals.

Anyone transporting animals must be adequately trained or qualified. Persons transporting farm animals by road vehicle over a distance of more than 65 km require a certificate of competence.
