Abstract

The protection of live animals during transport in the EU is currently regulated under the Council Regulation No. 1/2005. The current legal regime is strongly criticized by the European society. To reform the existing regulation, policy makers need insights into the impact of possible transport restrictions for live animals. In this work, we propose a mathematical programming model to assess the potential impact of a policy reform involving limitations of travelling times and space allowances. This model is implemented for the years 2002 and 2013. A sensitivity analysis is performed on variations of fuel prices and cost of meat transport
