Manlötens quarantine, currently ScandiPet, opened in 1976 and it is located in a small, beautiful farm, 30 minutes north of Stockholm (by car). After working with the quarantine imports for a short while, we began receiving requests to help export the same animals we had imported to quarantine (thanks to Dr Walter Woolf!).
Becoming a member of IPATA 2004
We began slowly and then in 2004 decided there was a big need for expertise in animal shipping in Sweden. The same year, we become a member of IPATA, International Pet and Animal Transportation Association. We work closely with many other IPATA companies around the world. We help each other with import/export queries and/or with transport within member countries. Thanks to these solid partnerships we maintain with other pet shippers worldwide we have even been able to broaden our range of services to provide door-to-door transport and animal companion schemes. Each move is an independent case with its fun and challenges. We do our best to ensure the safest travel plan for your pet.
Pet shipping is the bigger part of our business
Today things have changed and pet shipping takes up the bigger part of our business. Currently, ScandiPet holds a prominent position within the pet relocation scene in Sweden and the Nordic region. We have gained the trust of the airlines, breeders, veterinarians, ..etc, through our competence in knowing the regulations of travel and the rules for the import country along with providing the absolute best welfare for the pets. Running the quarantine parallel to ScandiPet was extremely helpful to understand the special needs for travelling pets and to accommodate them in the best way.
