McCollister's Transportation - The Journey to Mars

August 9, 2023

The Journey to Mars began when NASA's Orion spacecraft lifted off from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station Space Launch Complex (SLC) - 37B atop a Delta IV heavy rocket in July 2013. But the multimillion dollar transport of Orion sections pre-launch started months earlier, when McCollister's transportation was selected to handle the project.

McCollister's operates 15 facilities and 1.3 million square feet of warehouse space throughout the country, controls a fleet of over 850 vans, and provides logistics solutions to customers through a team of more than 900 individually trained, focused personnel. The company specializes in high-value product logistics, commercial services and employee relocation.

A UniGroup agency, McCollister's is one of the top revenue-producing agents in the United and Mayflower networks. In addition, the company develops innovative moving industry technology to help customers, including Quotes-To-Go, which allows UniGroup agency sales representatives to offer real-time pricing and side-by-side moving quote comparisons, and eAcceptance, which allows clients to start their moves without printing paperwork.

McCollister's is a proud supporter of Rescue Bank, a non-profit organization that works through regional non-profit Affiliate Distributors to deliver donated pet food to local animal welfare nonprofits across America. Each year, millions of pounds of pet food are donated by name brand manufacturers and distributed by Rescue Bank to qualified, local animal welfare non-profits in their communities.
