Jan de Rijk Logistics Transports a Tyrannosaurus Rex

Jan de Rijk Logistics recently transported a 66 million year old skeleton of a Tyrannosaurus Rex.

Employees of the Naturalis Museum in Leiden were surprised when they discovered an almost intact Tyrannosaurus Rex skeleton in the United States in 2013. Through crowd funding Naturalis succeeded to bring the dinosaur to the Netherlands. The skeleton, also affectionately called “Trix”, is one of the three most complete Tyrannosaurus Rex skeletons in the world. Trix is the only T-Rex skeleton that will be displayed outside the US.

KLM asked Jan de Rijk Logistics to move the dinosaur from Schiphol airport to the city of Leiden. “This kind of question we do not get every day. We are very proud to be part of this great event,” says Tim Roos, Manager Aerospace & Special Projects of Jan de Rijk Logistics.

“We are proud to be part of this literally historic event. In our daily work we provide advanced logistics solutions for clients from around the world. We are honored that we specifically have been asked by KLM to carry out this very special transport.”
