Livestock Transport


Moooooving Your Special Cargo

Hyndman is a member of the Ontario Trucking Association Livestock Transports’ Division (OTA-LTD). In order for any of our drivers to transport this special cargo, they must, without exception, participate in and complete the OTA-LTD Course successfully.

This course trains drivers to safely and securely transport animals while remaining sensitive to the animals’ needs. Drivers learn to adjust their driving techniques to accommodate for the behavioural differences between the animals they are transporting. This ensure the welfare of the animals they are transporting is not jeopardized.

Our drivers treat the animals with patience and care from loading, during transport, unloading and sorting. Hyndman livestock drivers value the welfare of the live cargo above all else.

Our 53′ tri-axle combination freight trailers can haul 55,000 lbs. or 24,500 kg. in Canada and 51,000 lbs. in the United States.

The trailers are fully vented for the livestock of course, but we can also convert them for non-livestock freight. After cleaning and conversion (installing plastic board sides), we seal the trailers with plastic so they are waterproof. This offers more capacity for western-bound freight when needed.
