Randolph, NJ - Farren International, a global supplier of transportation and rigging services, reached a company milestone in cross-continent oversize aircraft transportation on 26 June 2015, when it successfully delivered its 11th CH-47D Chinook helicopter from Delaware to Columbia Helicopters in Oregon.
