Mauro Balzarini is promising to revolutionise the livestock carrier sector with NextSeaWell, a new venture he claims will focus on developing cleaner, smarter livestock carriers that will significantly improve environmental performance and animal welfare.

Now based in Queenstown, New Zealand, Balzarini was chief executive of Australian livestock transport company Wellard until stepping down in June.

Balzarini claims his venture is aiming to build a new generation of LNG-powered livestock carriers that will be far in advance of those in service today.
