If you choose DB SCHENKERart, you can rest assured that you have made the right decision.

Experience and expertise to handle not just compact shipments
With DB Schenker, both outsized artefacts that are too big for any truck and tiny objects that are easily overlooked are transported safely and rapidly to their destination. 

DB SCHENKERart cooperates directly with exhibition managers, restorers, exhibition architects and art experts as soon as the project planning starts. Permanent security checks on employees, storage rooms, transport vehicles and equipment are part of our standard procedure. And thanks to our certified quality management system, our liability extends beyond the standard statutory requirements.

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 therefore need to be well organized. This means first-rate logistics for packaging, transport and customs clearance are fundamental to the success of your venture. At DB Schenker we provide the required expertise from one source.

Your exhibit at art fairs
DB SCHENKERart 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. Wherever you choose to exhibit, we'll be there to help you! Take advantage of our top class services and our attractive rates.

Your presence at art exhibitions and private showings
DB SCHENKERart 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.
