Artlines is Crown Fine Art’s very own weekly shuttle service, that spans across some of the major art centres in Europe.

Clients can benefit from door-to-door transport services, which includes fast, efficient and safe transportation. From a single artwork to travelling exhibitions, a contemporary sculpture to an old master painting, art is transported to its destination securely, on time and in perfect condition.

Timetable and scheduling

The Artlines shuttle is a weekly service which takes place 50 weeks of the year, running between Paris, Amsterdam, Brussels and London. The only two weeks that the service doesn’t run is over Christmas and New Year (weeks 1 and 52). Similarly, we have a second weekly service, which runs between Rome, Milan, London and Paris. 

We also offer an extended service which runs throughout the course of the year, covering: Amsterdam, Cologne, Frankfurt, Munich, Milan, Hamburg, Hannover, Berlin and Geneva.

The shuttle timetable is subject to change. 

Specialist vehicles

Our specialist vehicles are equipped with air suspension, climate control, track-and-trace monitoring and alarm systems. Each item is handled, transported and delivered by the same team, safely.

They are also equipped to maintain temperature and humidity, even during the most severe conditions, winter or summer.

As part of our commitment to reduce our carbon footprint, we increasingly select vehicles for their environmental performance as well as safety.

Packing Service

Our dedicated packing service also provides off-the-shelf commercial crates to one-off crafted cases, giving clients the opportunity to match the service and budget for each piece of artwork.

For further information about this service and its schedule please contact your local office.
