Bennett’s Aerospace Transportation & Logistics Management team went all-in to help Boeing keep its commitment to the U.S. Navy by delivering the MQ-25 drone four months faster than expected.
Planning and permitting a complex move like this ordinarily takes 4-6 months. Because of the sensitive timeframe, Bennett made all the preparations in 4-1/2 weeks.
The 85-mile haul from Boeing’s facility in Missouri to MidAmerica Airport in Illinois where it would be tested took place overnight on back roads and closed highways at the average speed of 5 to 10 mph.
Planning and executing the run tested Bennett’s deep experience and know-how in hauling rocket and jet engines, aircraft and fuselages for large aerospace manufacturers.
