A high-profile presence at art fairs and an original and frequently changing exhibition program are key to the success of your business - and this naturally calls for a high level of logistics expertise.

The transportation of pictures to art fairs and the handling of these pictures once they arrive at the venue are time-sensitive issues and need to be well organized. This means first-rate logistics for packaging, transport and customs clearance are fundamental to the success of the venture.

DB Schenker's gallery service provides the requisite expertise to handle these jobs effectively – and also offers consolidated transports to virtually all the major art fairs around the globe, be it in Berlin, Cologne, New York, Miami, Hong Kong, Seoul or Basel.

DB Schenker is also your partner of choice for highly specific transport services, when your pictures need to be transported to private "preview" showings or to other galleries. No matter how big or small the overall shipment - we can provide you with a tailored concept for your transport needs.
