Horses for Canada’s Olympic equestrian team fly “first-class”

     Equestrian Hurdle
 

Learn about the first hurdle Canada’s equestrian horses had to clear
– making the flight to Rio.

Transporting the horses for Canada’s equestrian team to the Olympics involved a very special process created to give our four-legged competitors the best ride possible.  In total, there were three key steps: load the horses into a “box stall”; place the box stall on top of a pallet; slide the pallet into the plane and lock it down to minimize movements.

The pilots helped out as well by taking extra special care to make smooth take-offs and landings.  In short, the horses got first-class treatment from start to finish – and that might just give them the small additional edge that translates into a place on the podium.

Quick Tip #57
When Incoterms are incomplete

The shipping term FOB (Free on Board) is incomplete when the port of shipment and country are omitted. Moreover, you could end up paying extra if an incorrect assumption (guess) is made about your port of shipment (many countries have multiple ports of shipment).
