First, we will offer the most suitable forwarding plan.
The first thing we do is book flights and space.
We also make detailed arrangements suiting the pieces of art to meet shipping requirements to the maximum. For example, "Can they be stacked?" or "In what direction should they be loaded?"

We will avoid congested hours and places for delivering the shipments in and out of the warehouse, shorten the flow of movement to the maximum to achieve the shortest route and time.
Expertly-trained frontline staff will confirm and hold briefings on these detailed check items, and conduct a simulation on the day of handling.
