LATAM Cargo is transporting a total of 196 horses for dressage, show jumping and eventing competitions to and from Chile to participate in the 2023 Pan American Games.
Through a complex three-week operation, horses from the US, Colombia, Ecuador, Brazil, Argentina, Uruguay, Mexico, and Paraguay were transported on B767F cargo planes.
LATAM Cargo states that the logistical process behind this transport began three months before the sporting event, and involved the coordination of a series of details such as optimal routes, stables, horse teams, and professional caregivers accompanying the horses.
This was all carried out in compliance with the rigorous procedure offered by ALIVE, animal care as part of LATAM Cargo’s product portfolio.
The horses are attended to throughout the flight, receiving supplies of water, forage, and food, with constant attention from highly-trained veterinarians to accompany them during the journey.
Juan Pablo Márquez, senior cargo operations manager in Chile for LATAM Cargo, said: “For us, it is an honour to be part of this major sporting event that is ‘Santiago 2023,’ and for equestrian federations to choose us as their trusted option for transporting the horses they will use in the competitions.
“It is a recognition of our extensive experience in this type of transportation, our logistics, and the specialised personnel that allows us to provide top-level handling to ensure the well-being of these animals.
“We will continue working to deliver a service with the highest quality standards for our customers.”
