Each artwork is the hard work of artist; we do not want to see that artwork is damaged again because of logistics and distribution issues!

Something unpleasant happened when El Arte appointed a forwarder in delivering artworks years ago. The artwork was damaged during transportation, result in a 6-figure loss. Although insurance companies covered the damages, the artwork was unique and could not be valued solely on monetary terms. Therefore, choosing a suitable logistics solution is one of the challenges the team has been facing over the years.
