Can the ship's master refuse to carry a livestock vehicle?


Yes, this could happen if:

  • Your vehicle doesn't comply with the relevant regulations and the guidance notes relating to it

  • The Master believes hot or inclement weather, or adverse sea conditions, would cause suffering to animals on board.
