With the logistics market slowing down because of the oil prices we, at ATS, decided to look for a new niche within our market – live cargo.  We are proud to move family pets to wherever their new home may be.

It all began with a dog shipped by Esse Emme Srl (the GFG’s Italian member) to Luanda.  This was followed by the adventure of sending PERI THE PARROT (  ) to Miami with the help of our friends of Ari Shipping in Florida.

Now I bring to you the story of a Beagle – MR. STANLEY, or “our old boy” as his owner likes to call him.  Mr Stanley is now 12 years old and he has become used to travelling wherever his “father’s” job with Chevron takes him.  He is certainly building up some air miles.


Mr. Stanley was first introduce to us through a company in Indonesia that had already shipped several dogs and cats consigned to us.  Mr Stanley arrived in Luanda on September 22, 2015 after a long flight that brought him from Jakarta to Dubai, and from Dubai to Luanda.  Within two hours of arriving in Luanda, he was happily greeting his family.

After some years in Luanda, Mr. Stanley returned home on the 16th May 2017.  He flew from Luanda to Dubai and then from Dubai to Glasgow.  After a 24 hour quarantine in Glasgow, he was delivered safely to Aberdeen, where his family were waiting for him.  As you can see in the pictures Mr Stanley first landed at the airport in Glasgow and has now settled in to enjoy the beautiful countryside of Scotland.
