The Logistics of Art


Moving and storing artworks from anywhere in the world always has its challenges, but it can be even more challenging when moving objects to and from and within China. In 2009,
Crown Worldwide officially opened its climate and humidity controlled art vaults and special private show room in Shanghai – adding to the business’s already world-renowned reputation for packing, transporting and storing fine works of art.

Crown Fine Arts has been providing specialized fine arts packing and transportation services for major museums and art galleries worldwide since 1989 and has been operating in Shanghai for the last two years.

The new Shanghai vaults and show room are testament to Crown’s ongoing commitment to bring its state-of-the art services to the Chinese market. The vaults, which are housed alongside
Crown’s internationally accredited wine cellar, ensure the safest first-class storage conditions for any kinds of artworks in China. Clients using Crown’s Shanghai Fine Arts services also have access to condition checking facilities and a special private show room to exhibit artworks.



Crown has in the past been selected as the official logistics provider of fine arts transportation, packing and installation for some of the world’s most important international art fairs including in Greater China, ART Hong Kong and Shanghai’s annual international art fair, ShContemporary.
Moreover, Crown continues to assist many galleries and private collectors in the Shanghai area with

international and local packing and shipment services for all kinds of artwork.

With its fine reputation as a first class fine art shipper and art handler, Crown Fine Arts has also played an active role assisting with several shipments of artworks from all over the world for display at Shanghai’s World Expo 2010.

With more than 200 offices worldwide, Crown has been providing expert and quality services for 45 years in the relocation business.
