Livestock Crates

Livestock Crates: Total Protection of Livestock in Transit for Best Results

Protecting your precious living cargo in varied aircraft and shipping conditions is essential for maintaining the well-being of the animals as well as their value to your business and your customers.

CMTP goes beyond conventional packaging to provide secure and reliable freight crating solutions for domestic and international air and sea transportation of livestock.
Available all over Australia, CMTP’s live animal crates can be constructed at our manufacturing facilities or at your specified site. All our pens can be supplied in “flat pack kit form”, another example of CMTP’s innovative and practical methods implemented to reduce transport costs. We also hold a range of pens in stock for immediate delivery.
CMTP’s livestock freight crates are made from plantation-grown timber and are designed to transport a range of animals.

Purpose built and compliant with ISPM 15 export standards. CMTP’s livestock crates are certified by an independent Structural Engineer to ensure they meet International Air Transport Association (IATA) regulations, and aircraft and shipping requirements.

Savvy, Practical Designs to Suit almost any Transport

A CMTP designed and manufactured stock pen comes with:

  • Effluent absorption mats on the base of each deck – critical in protecting the aircraft from effluent leakage.
  • Cushioning material as part of that mat to give the animal some comfort during transit
  • Easily demountable upper decks on multi deck pens
  • Vertical or horizontal sliding doors
  • Option of dividers to separate animals if required
  • Delivery to Melbourne or Sydney airports (and Brisbane or Perth by arrangement)

Our in-house design team can create variations from the standard (for instance contours to fit various types of aircraft) using state of the art CAD systems.
