ATLAS live bird handling system

An efficient transport solution, from farm to plant

  • Vastly improves efficiency
  • Increases levels of animal wellbeing
  • Robust in-plant system ensures high throughput
  • Leads to a decrease in CO2 emissions


Increased levels of animal wellbeing

In the supply chain, handling remains humane at all times. During transport and in the plant, the birds are placed in spacious trays. The advanced SmartStack module—consisting of a revolutionary loadable pallet with a variable number of trays—gives high attention to animal welfare, while also boosting efficiency. Flip-over side panels give all-round access to remove birds in distress, while the pallet doubles as an additional tray.

Environmentally beneficial

Due to the ingenious design of this module, loading capacity increases dramatically (up to 38%), while bird headroom extends to an industry-leading height. This means fewer truck movements will be required, subsequently leading to dramatically reduced levels of carbon dioxide being emitted.


  • Innovative module for transport flexibility 
  • The frameless SmartStack module consists of a pallet and a variable number of self-nesting trays
