Customs formalities and ATA Carnet

Yearlong experience with customs clearance guarantees smooth procedures.

EquiLog Services is powered by Watson Global Logistics, experts in worldwide shipping and forwarding with 15 years’ experience in custom declaration. We take care of all customs formalities. And we advise you on relevant import and export procedures.

Being AEO certified – a mark of great quality and service – we comply with the strictest European customs requirements. We have easier access to authorizations and permits. And we handle your shipments faster and more secure.

We are flexible and offer round-the-clock services, including health certificate requirements.

Is your horse participating in a competition outside of the EU? We save you time and worries by completing all necessary formalities with customs and the Chamber of Commerce before, during and after the transport. This includes the ATA Carnet (an international customs and temporary import-export document), which eliminates the need for a customs declaration at border points.

Health certificates

Preparation of all required documentation with regard to health certificates.

If you are looking to sell horses internationally (within or outside of the EU), you need health certificates issued by the FASFC: the Federal Agency for the Safety of the Food Chain. EquiLog Services coordinates with the FASFC to make sure that all health requirements are met. We care so that you are carefree!

Elkenhof stable treatment EquilogEquilog stables

Layover and pre-export quarantine

New and spacious stables with web monitoring.

Our bright and airy stables are situated in Ellikom and Stokkem (Limburg), approximately a one-hour drive from the airport in Liège and 2hours from Amsterdam Schiphol. This location is ideal to allow the horses to relax before being shipped to their final destination. We can collect your horses at your location and groom them at our stables. You can arrange further transport yourself, or leave it up to us.

The stables of Elkenhof are modern and spacious, offering the very best accommodation. During pre-export quarantine, blood samples and CEM swaps are taken and sent to the laboratory in time.

Rest assured, we coordinate everything while your precious animals enjoy topnotch service. We do not offer a VIP formula – we treat all horses as first-class passengers.

Pre-flight service, transport and in-flight groom

Giving your horses the top-quality service they deserve!

EquiLog Services offers all-in transportation – from and to quarantine stables and the airport – managed by highly experienced staff. We take into account the number of horses. And we move your horses from their stables of origin to the quarantine stables without intermediate stops, hence minimizing stress during transport.

Our own professional grooms accompany your horses throughout the complete airport and flight process. They are qualified and caring horsemen, ensuring your equine travellers enjoy a comfortable journey.

We source the most appropriate airport of departure based on competitive rates and the availability of direct flights – the shorter the trip the better!

Cherry on the pie: we carefully groom your horses before the flight, clip them if necessary, and give them a personalized blanket – premium service from start to finish!

Insurance for equestrian transport

Comply with insurance regulations.

To legally transport your horses, you are responsible for providing insurance coverage. EquiLog Services can provide expert advice on insurance issues, and tailor a solution to your needs. We work closely with Hippozorg and Callant.

Bespoke services for a world-class experience

Always willing to go the extra mile for you and your precious horses.

Our aim is to offer you and your horses the best possible all-in service from start to finish. We pride ourselves on being big enough to manage every aspect of equine transportation, yet small enough to truly care. We are horse-loving people doing transport, not transport people ‘doing’ horses. Our main concern is and always will be your horse’s happiness and health.
