They don't need one....

They use the train to ferry fuselage sections from Wichita, Kan. to the Everett factory.

In Europe that clearly wasn't a possibilty because of English channel, high prices, etc.

Super Transporter

Boeing does not have a super transporter like that used by Airbus. Boeing transports its hull/cockpit sections via rail and road from various locations across the country. Parts made overseas, such as the 777 rudder made in Australia, are flown in a cargo plane.
