THE USPOULTRY AIR CARGO COMMITTEE WORKS TO SAFEGUARD CHICKS AND EGGS DURING AIR TRANSPORT
USPOULTRY's Air Cargo Committee was established more than 30 years ago when primary breeders were increasing their global sales and shipping breeder chicks, turkey poults and hatching eggs by air to many international destinations. But with the growing number of shipments and losses also began to increase, several breeder companies joined together to form the Air Cargo Committee to find ways to reduce losses. They developed what became the Air Cargo Seminar to convey to the airlines and airline warehouse workers, proper handling techniques and environmental conditions necessary to protect their perishable, but valuable products. Positive results were soon realized, and losses declined. Today, Air Cargo Seminars continue to be held periodically in Atlanta, Dallas, Miami, New York and other airports as necessary, including international airports.
