In Italy Public Vets Services are in charge for the management of the outbreak and the supervision of the operation. There are private dedicated companies in charge for the depopulation (with gas) operations such as for the removal and transport of the carcasses.
To avoid the possible contamination of the areas (including neighbourg poultry farms) around the outbreak we adopt disinfection during the depopulation operations not only for the trucks (or the other means of transport) but also for the areas here we manage the operations.
In general then you must consider that when we have an outbreak immediately after the confirmation we stop completely any movements of animals (or their products), means of tarnsports and visitors from and into the farm.
