There are times when companies contact FreightCenter for help shipping a few pallets of goods here and there. Then there are times when they need help organizing daily, weekly or even monthly freight shipping. But only once has someone contacted us to help transport a Trojan Horse.
That, someone, was the National Geographic Society.
Illumivation Studios, a long-time customer of ours, built a 3,700-pound replica of the storied gift from the tale of the Trojan War. Aptly named “Troy”, the horse was built to accompany “The Greeks”, a show which features 500 ancient artifacts never before seen outside of Greece. Troy started its journey in Chicago where the Illumivation studio is located. Its first home was The Field Museum, also in Chicago, where it straddled a nearby subway entrance.
