Convelio, the tech-led fine art shipper, has announced a new suite of services to directly meet the logistical needs of art market clients, introducing Convelio Essential, the shipper’s standard service offering that is also its most cost-efficient shipping option, and Convelio Fine Art, its ‘white-glove’ service for high-value shipments. The services have been designed to meet the diverse needs of distinct sections of the art market with high-quality, technologically advanced shipping solutions. Following the recent acquisition of CIFA, longstanding logistics partner to high calibre clients across the art market, Convelio can offer direct management of the most complex projects for Convelio Fine Art clients.
Convelio’s co-founder and CEO, Edouard Gouin, commented: “We understand that each client’s shipping needs are unique. Our goal is to empower them with tailored solutions, whether it’s our standard high-quality service, Essential, or the top-tier Fine Art option. Our dedication to meeting these diverse demands is evident in our custom online and offline solutions that seamlessly blend a personal touch, ensuring each client’s individual requirements are addressed. This expansion underscores our unwavering commitment to enhancing our services through technological innovation, all while preserving the human element at the core of our approach.

Shipping orders will be tailored to clients’ preferences with an extensive menu of options for each to customise their shipping experience. From packaging to insurance coverage, transportation modes to delivery timelines, clients will be able to curate a shipping package that suits their artwork and budget. As with Convelio’s historic offering, customers of the Convelio Essential option will be able to track their shipments via its proprietary digital platform.
The Convelio Fine Art shipping service is tailored for clients who require the utmost precision when handling their high-value art pieces.
