Secret life of pets


With over 50 years of experience, of delivering top-quality service to both it’s human and animal clients, Gradlyn remains unsurpassed in the pet relocation industry. James Matthews investigates

Companies began transporting pets as early as 1968. The first pet flights was by G.K. Airfreight, a company that specializes in the air travel of pets in the world. Today, the professional, international team at Gradlyn work hard to relive owners and pets of the stress of the relocation process. With headquarters at Frankfurt airport and a branch office at Munich, the global livestock experience of their network is what makes Gradlyn so special.

The precious pet cargo is organzied from a to z. From the examination of the CITES regulations, the selection consultancy for the best animal transport boxes, care and up to the start of delivery at the destination. All regulatory approvals and health certificates are checked and ensure safe and efficient transportation.

Their fully trained staff,  multi-lingual, (speaking a total of nine languages) staff, will ensure a perfectly coordinated processing at destination airports. Appropriate animal transportation is very important to us.

Specialially adapted vehicles and animal transportation boxes that are licensed by the International Air Carrier Association (IATA), ensure a smooth and effective transport process.

Ensuring the animal passengers reach their destination in the most comfortable and secure way.

As Kay Wissenbach, CEO of Gradlyn states: "By car or by plane, the animal is the focus. A species-appropriate and thus pleasant transport is our top priority. This is guaranteed, among other things, by our air-conditioned special vehicles and animal transport boxes licensed by the International Air Transport Association (IATA). Our "animal" passengers cannot reach their destination more comfortably and safely. The health and well-being of the animal is always the focus of our actions.“

On your behalf, Gradlyn appoint a designated personal contact from the outset whose job it is to offer advice and assistance to the pet owner about any detail of the planning, organization or implementation of arrangements. This is just one reason for their unsurapassed reputation as the leading European animal transporter of zoo species, breeding animals and pets.

Whether export, import or in transit the whole team at Gradlyn work hand-in-hand. Priding themselves in the smoothness of cooperation with authorities, veterinarians and clients sets them  apart from the competition.

With their charter department allowing a larger, simultaneous loading on major projects. The "Door to Door Service", which is important to Gradlyn, is simplified by their certified partners which ensures quick delivery of the animals in their new homes.
