Today we set up a control point on a highway with the first group of participants of our training, to exercise in practice what was discussed yesterday during the theory part of our training. ITD (Road Transport Inspectors) are providing their professional and kind help. Two livestock trucks are pulled over and inspected. Both trucks are Polish and transporting pigs on journeys of under 8 hours. No major shortcomings are found, but several less severe ones are pointed out to the drivers. One truck needs to have its roof repaired before it can continue transporting animals. The second truck is driven by a very lucky driver who was stopped already once before by us during our training courses in Poland. We are pleased to see that the recommendations from the previous inspection have been implemented, although not perfectly. The driver receives more instructions. The loading density is calculated as well, but everything is within the EU norm. It is good to see that in both cases transport documentation is complete and correct. This practical day shows the added value when the two inspection-bodies (official veterinarians and ITD) cooperate.
