Live Bird Transport and Factory Reception

An integral part of any poultry processing facility is the transportation of live birds from farm to slaughterhouse. The systems and equipment used varies from continent to continent and country to country depending upon the environment, general preferences and the size and accessibility of growing houses. In recent times the industry has moved to the transportation of live chicken in modules, each fitted with eight topless drawers. These systems have enormous welfare benefits, reductions in damage and mortality as well as significant cost savings. However, in many parts of the World, traditional individual crates are still used often due to the size of farm sheds. Poultry Processing specialises in the module system with fully automatic crate handling within the factory as well as factory reception and cleaning systems for traditional crates.
