Accessible to the worldwide scientific community, the James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) is an opportunity to observe galaxy evolution, the formation of stars and planets, exoplanetary systems, and our own solar system, as never before.

Moving the James Webb Space Telescope for NASA was a project that included planning trucking routes to accommodate the sheer size of the unit in California, to arranging a charter vessel to ship from Los Angeles to French Guiana. Additionally, EFM arranged on behalf of NASA, 17,000 hotel nights for NASA and their subcontractors, a Doctor as we were just coming out of COVID and ground transport services.

Since delivering the JWST in 2021, EFM Global’s special projects team has provided for the World Economic Forum Annual Meeting – attended by presidents and prime ministers, business leaders and entrepreneurs – 1,506m up in Davos, Switzerland.

“I wanted to drop you all a message just to say thank you! You were all absolutely amazing and exceptional at what you did. Both from the very last minute pre-production planning to the interesting challenges onsite of getting multiple lorries up a mountain, all was achieved and all the feedback I have personally received was extremely positive.”
