A leader in specialized transport services, McCollister’s has experience moving anything from exotic cars to rockets. Their work for NASA was no exception, as they worked to move the Orion spacecraft components pre-launch. Performing this task required state permits/surveys, route planning, and four escorts/flag cars.
