what is so expensive is the quarantine at the airport and in Frankfurt.Latter charges through airline LH $ 270.00 per night per horse. And in Atlanta $ 150.00.
Then there is insurance to be considered and the quality of overall handling and transport. LH charges fuel surcharge, ranging $1.40- $ 1.05 per kg and charges 3000 kg per pallet of 3 horses. Since rates flactuate, one never knows all the costs until shipment is booked and paid for.Also the Agri has increased rates and double charges for overtime and weekends.($ 100.- per normal hour).I guess these rates depend on port of shipment. We ship out of Atlanta via Frankfurt/Germany.
and thence to the UAE. A 5 hour quarantine and 4 hour Airport-already comes to some $ 900.00 - or $ 1800.- and the latter usually is the case, plus $ 125.- to 150.00 Quarantien charges for 5 hours. PLus travel charges for the Agri vet..
I guess overall it balances all out.
