Domestically it's just another cross country flight and most companies will do it themselves.

Overseas you'll need the aircraft tanked, HF radio and a ferry permit. I did that for 10 years back in the 1980s but things were much easier then with overflight permits, ferry permits and TSA.

Caravans are really easy to tank and can carry an amazing amount of fuel. I've taken 208 Anphibs (600 HP) to South Africa and Australia; take-off was at 11,200 lbs and you were lucky to get 200 ft/min..

PM me if you want more info.

Ferrying all over the world from Witchita I believe is already taken care of by a couple of guys.

I wouldn't go so far as to state that "it's taken care of". Obviously there's room for more because the demand is there.
