JBS USA Carriers


JBS USA Carriers is responsible for providing safe transportation to over 1.5 million cattle each year. JBS USA Carriers is the critical link between our cattle suppliers and our processing facilities — delivering cattle every day in a manner that ensures humane handling during loading at the feedyard, a safe journey for both drivers and animals, and minimal stress of cattle during unloading at our facilities.

JBS USA Carriers takes pride in the safe and efficient transport of animals to processing facilities across the country. Our drivers bring a passion for the industry to work with them every day.

JBS USA Carriers, in conjunction with JBS USA Five Rivers Cattle Feeding® and the animal welfare department, provides drivers with animal handling and safety training. The training materials are based on the Master Cattle Transporter Guide, part of the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association’s (NCBA) Beef Quality Assurance (BQA) program, which is widely recognized as the industry standard for truck driver training.

Animal handling and safety training play an important role in the development of our drivers. Our training, adoption of industry-wide standards, and the years of valuable experience many of our haulers possess, provide JBS USA Carriers with a fleet of seasoned, well-trained professionals committed to excellent service and the safety and comfort of the animals under their care.

As a component of the animal welfare programs at each JBS USA processing facility, cattle transporters are audited daily to verify adherence to JBS USA humane handling standards and the North American Meat Institute (NAMI) Transportation Guidelines. Additionally, transportation audit criteria are included in annual audits conducted by third parties. The cattle transporters, schedulers, and plant personnel are in constant communication with one another, to ensure prompt delivery and safe unloading of animals at each facility.
