Page Transport has developed a livestock transit facility on both sides of Bass Strait in close proximity to the ports.

This allows us to make the trip across the water in the shortest time possible, a factor critical in some classes of livestock eg. dairy cows or pigs, allowing access to feed and water, within as little as 16 hours from the start to the end of the journey.

Careful liaison with the shipping companies as to prevailing conditions on Bass Strait is made as early as 6 a.m. on the day of sailing at the destination port.

Over the years we have perfected our system of shipping livestock across Bass Strait in purpose-built shipping equipment.

The trailers and containers have been continually improved and updated over some 50 years of shipping on a roll-on-roll-off basis.

We have constructed some 55 containers at our own workshop and built over 20 40 foot stock crates with appropriate weather protection and ventilation as well as sturdiness to withstand the rigours of Bass Strait open deck shipping.

The latest addition is the provision of rubber flooring in response to an issue with larger bullocks, where previously saw-dust was used to cushion the feet preventing potential soreness on the longer journey.
