Here at Express Mail Logistics, we occasionally get a call asking if we can ship something unusual – dangerous goods are no problem for us. Lithium batteries? No problem – we’ll help you navigate the rules and regulations.
But transporting live animals across the globe is more complex than many of the shipments that Express Mail Logistics handles.
Patrick Craig, Executive Director of the Wild Animal Sanctuary in Keenesburg, Colorado, called on us to collect three lions from a zoo in South Korea and safely transport them to their new home in a 15-acre enclosure at the sanctuary. The journey included a flight from Seoul, South Korea to Los Angeles, followed by a long truck journey.
Planning, customs and import clearance
“This was our first rescue of animals from Asia, and it turned out to be one of the most well-planned and executed rescues due to the help provided by Express Mail Logistics staff and related support,” said Patrick Craig.
“Given the short amount of lead time, this rescue could have been extremely difficult, but Express Mail Logistics worked very hard to get everything lined up so the rescue was carried out in a very short amount of time. They were able to work with our team to ensure all the bases were covered, which is critical when dealing with live animals that cannot be delayed.”
The work that the Wild Animal Sanctuary is doing is important and complex, and each animal rescue comes with its own set of issues and challenges that test even the best of logistics operators.
“Being able to get as many of the details sorted out and resolved ahead of time by Express Mail Logistics helped immensely, because getting these taken care of from another country is incredibly difficult”
– Patrick Craig, Executive Director of the Wild Animal Sanctuary in Keenesburg, Colorado
While there are snags in any transport, the Express Mail Logistics teams in both USA and Korea worked together to overcome permit issues, last minute flight changes, and rearranged ground logistics throughout the process. Patrick has noticed that throughout his time working with Express Mail Logistics, the team has grown more proficient in arranging critical inspections and communications and said that he will choose Express Mail Logistics when the time comes again for another international animal rescue. The lions had no complaints about the service either.
“Saving large carnivores from terribly abusive situations and transporting them to a sanctuary where they can live out the rest of their lives in peace and comfort makes all of the effort worthwhile”, he concludes.
